I’m delighted to see my poem ‘Two Boys’ published in the latest edition of The Poetry Review. Also included are new poems by Jen Hadfield, Mark Waldron, Kayo Chingonyi, Dave Margoshes, Richard Georges, Melissa Lee-Houghton, Carrie Etter among others. My thanks to editor Emily Berry.
I’m delighted to be reading in Birmingham this Thursday evening at the launch of the last edition of The Poetry Review, where I’m honoured to be sharing the stage with Gregory Leadbetter, Helen Mort and Julian Standard. It’s happening in Birmingham City University’s Institute of Creative & Critical Writing. I’ve had many great poetry-related experiences in the British West Midlands over the years so I’m looking forward to this one!
