Broadcast reading in London 27th November 2012 and other events

Following on from the launch of my debut pamphlet Then Spree, I will be doing several readings in the UK. The first is with Broadcast – the poetry event series organised by Emily Hasler and Roddy Lumsden. The line-up also includes Matthew Caley, Oli Hazzard and Luke Kennard and takes place on Tuesday the 27th of November at the Betsey Trotwood pub in Farringdon, London. More details on the event are available on the Broadcast website. Also on the Broadcast website you will find a new poem by me – 4 rooms, which is inspired by the sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard’s 4 rooms – recorded at Chernobyl.

Other upcoming readings include: a new Penning Perfumes at Clerkenwell Tales Bookshop, London on the 28th of Novembera reading alongside the fantastic Aurelia Lassaque, Amy Key, SJ Fowler, Jessica Pujol and others at Housman’s radical bookshop in Kings Cross, London on Thursday the 13th of December and  a music/poetry night at the Full Stop in Brick Lane London on the 16th of December. Events in Sheffield, Bristol and Wales to be announced soon.
