Thrilled to hear my poem ‘No Prizes’ has been accepted by Prole, my favourite print journal. Always an honour to feature among its top quality prose and poetry. Issue 30 is due out in May.
Delighted to see my poem ‘A Conference Of Crows’ up at The Beach Hut, an interesting new online magazine publishing quality coastal-themed poems. Grateful thanks to the editorial team.
Delighted to have two poems accepted for inclusion among a stellar list of poets in the forthcoming Green Fields anthology, published by The Poetry Village. Thanks to editors David and Nick. I’m looking forward to the launch in March.
A bit late posting this but I had a fabulous afternoon in December as a co-headliner (alongside my great friend Pat Edwards) at Word Club Christmas event held in the warm and welcoming Chemic Tavern pub in Leeds. Many, many thanks to Mark Connors and Gill Lambert for organising the event and for inviting me. What an atmosphere! And so great to spend time with fellow Yaffles Pat (& Mike!), Michael Farren, Matt Nicholson, Kathleen Strafford, Ian Harker, Terry Simpson and Linda Marshall plus so many others including Edwin Stockdale, Moira Garland, Sarah L Dixon, Andy Humphrey and Joe Williams. So many excellent poets together on an afternoon to remember.
