Hope to see you there.
The super poet Karen Pierce Gonzalez from Folk Heart Press has invited me to be the featured poet a North Bay Poetics online session, talking about prose poetry, process, and I'll be reading a few poems too. There is an open mic section and two fellow Welsh poets will be joining, Lesley James @feetpetite, and Kath Hill. Really looking forward to it.
In a couple of weeks time, on Wednesday 14 June, starting at 7.30pm I will be headlining at the regular Murenger Poetry Night, in Newport. Hosted in a 19th Century pub, my 2x 20 minute sets will be followed by Open Mic sessions - sign ups available on the night. Its always a relaxed, friendly, poetry filled night. Thanks to Alan Roderick for the invite.
I was delighted to be invited by Taz Rahman to be interviewed for the 'Just Another Poet' video interview series, supported by The Books Council of Wales.
Link to my interview here, via youtube.
Taz is a generous and thoughtful interviewer - would highly recommend.
Many thanks to Matthew MC Smith, and Black Bough Poetry, for my Best of the Net nomination from the Silver Branch Project. My poem 'With my last exhale on this Earth' comes from my debut pamphlet, which is on submission at the moment.
