Northern Launch in Manchester — 30, May, 2011
I am pleased to say I have a new poem in ‘Lung Jazz’: Young British Poets for Oxfam‘ edited by Todd Swift and Kim Lockwood. It features friends and heroes like: Owen Sheers, Sophie Hannah, Clare Pollard, Joanne Limburg, Rowyda Amin, Stefan Mohamed and Zoe Brigley. With a foreword by David Lehman. I’ve not seen a copy yet but I like the names in it and all the money goes to a good cause so that should make us all feel good. Buy a copy from Cinnamon Press here.
Also, I’ll be appearing at the Northern Launch in Manchester. Please come. And tell people on the Face Waste about it…
