My first full collection, 'Heft', is due from red Squirrel Press in March 2020, exciting times!

I've been sorting readings, particularly around April 2020, and the initial details are now up on my web site. I hope you're able to come along to one of the events if you live locally. I'm particularly looking forward to my readings in Wales. Some are venues I'm familiar with, others are new to me.

There will be more around the country, arrangements are in hand!

I've also had the privilege of editing Kemal Houghton's first ever pamphlet for Red Squirrel Press. Due around the same time as my collection I'm hoping we'll be able to arrange some joint readings. Details will appear on my web site and my blog once finalised. I'm pretty sure Kemal will be posting details here, there and everywhere too!!

In other Red Squirrel Press news, I'm delighted that my good friend Maureen Weldon also has a pamphlet forthcoming from Red Squirrel Press next year. I don't have any details yet but I'm sure Mo will let everyone know in due course.

'Heft' will be available to buy from my web site, at readings, from my publisher directly, and by messaging me from next March. I'll post full details when all the arrangements have been concluded.

Take care and, hopefully, see you next year if not before!
