2013 in brief

Neglectful as ever, so here's a quick update on what's happened this year.

I had two books published, To Blart & Kid (Like This Press) and A Treatise on Disaster (Contraband Books). You can read an interview conducted by Chris Spragg about To Blart & Kid here.

I had some poems published in DEFAULT and Blart.

I wrote a lot of reviews for Bonafide magazine, and some for the Quietus.

Thanks to the generosity of a number of others, I got to read some places. These included Oxford, Edinburgh, Brighton and London. You can watch me at Steven J Fowler's event to mark an outgrowth his Enemies project below:

and here with Joe Kennedy at Camaradefest:

Particular thanks to Steven for archiving these. You should really visit his blog.

Take care of yourselves.

New Book - cut out

Depart Press have been good enough to put a new book out. It's available here for five pounds.

Reading at:

Poets for Pussy Riot
Wednesday August 29th 2012  - 7pm until late - Free entrance
at the Rich mix arts centre, main space venue,
35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA             020 7613 7498      
With the news that Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich of the Russian punk collective, Pussy Riot, were sentenced to two years in prison for a wholly necessary and valid political protest, contemporary poets in London will come together in a unique evening of readings, featuring original poetry and text, as well as the words of Pussy Riot themselves. This event is an act of solidarity through the medium of poetry - a celebration of the courage and spirit of fellow writers of this generation, writing for real political change in a country that needs it.
Featuring readings from over 30 poets including Tim Atkins, David Berridge, Becky Cremin, Kirsty Irving, Francesca Lisette, Chris McCabe, Reza Mohammadi, Sandeep Parmar, Jack Underwood, James Wilkes and many others.
