Happy Halloween y’all! We’ve got a brand new poetry podcast!

We’ve got the supurb Kona MacPhee reading a creepy little poem called The Ghost Toe and Kim Tebble’s brilliant rendition of his “The Raven, the Knight and the Queen of the Birds”

Here’s the Blurb from the SPL

Featuring an interview with poet Kona Macphee, who discusses her Poem of the Week project and reads a Halloween themed poem from her first book, Tails. Her new collection Perfect Blue, is out in February from Bloodaxe. We’ve also got a scary treat from Kim Tebble, who performs his “The Raven, the Knight and the Queen of the Birds”.

If you’d like to send us your favourite scary poem and why you like it, or just say hello to Ryan and Colin, please drop us a line to splpodcast@gmail.com

And don’t forget you can catch me this weekend at the Storytelling Festival and at the Electric Cabaret. Both events are on Halloween and should be amazing — the former being a lovely chat and the latter being an all-out party! Plus – there’s the Golden Hour at Elvis Shakespeare on Sunday, 1 November. Books, music, good chat. 2pm. Come along.

And now, in case you’re not freaked out enough, here’s Christopher Walken. Enjoy!!!
