Looking forward to the new freedom-themed Magma, where one of my cow sonnets has broken in between poems by Andrew Pidoux and Alice Willington. Forward prize winner Kei Miller will be reading at the magazine’s London launch for Magma 60 on Friday 28 November at 7pm at the London Review Bookshop, 14 Bury Place, London WC1A 2JL. The Newcastle launch is on Thursday 11 December at 7pm at the Lit & Phil, 23 Westgate Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE, with guest reader Sean O’Brien.
Waiting, part 1
Photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes and I are collaborating on a short (I want to say micro) film about waiting. The dialogue (to camera/voiceover) is a sonnet, but maybe no one needs to know.
