Busy week again, singing Monday (Vocal Chords mid-project ‘stop-over’ concert) and Sunday (rehearsing Brundibar at Blackheath – more on this later), teaching Tuesday, reading Saturday.
So the readings are:
Saturday: Arachne Press event at Keats House – readings from The Other Side of Sleep, and discussion of Narrative Poetry. I’m not reading personally apart form a cheeky 30 second thing, but I am taking part in my role of editor of the book. Readings from Alwyn Marriage, Jennifer A McGowan, Bernie Howley, Sarah Lawson and Math Jones.
It’s taken me a while to get round to posting this, as there’s been other things on my mind.
Here I am reading at Richmond Library in February, complete with interventions from planes on flight path to Heathrow!:
Arachne’s Daughters (with Alix Adams) from Mosaic of Air
A Place of Departures from Stations
Neutral Ground from 52 :Loves
Brad Powers and Saffron Chan reading Portrait… (rather well!) at Liars’ League Hong Kong for True & False.
Jeanne Lambin. reading The Wetland Way for Hunter & Prey at Liars’ League Hong Kong. The sound isn’t great but still…
