I am so pleased and excited to tell you that two of my poems, “The Way Queenie Smokes” and “Why I’m Scared to Let Go of the Papers” are feature in issue 18 of the Nine Arches Press magazine Under The Radar.
You can read “Queenie” above, I had help editing this in the Advanced Workshop at The Poetry School earlier this year. “The Papers” poem, funnily enough, is the poem I performed earlier in the year as a part of my Boring Conference talk on Paper Bags from Independent Bookshops.
What a lovely end to my writing year!

I was very lucky to be a poet in residence as a part of the remixed borders programme. A collaboration between London Parks and Gardens Trust and the Poetry School. Here’s my write up of the Open Garden Squares Weekend, where I was poet in residence for Branch Hill Allotmetns, Hampstead.

On Saturday I was very lucky to be a speaker at this year’s Boring Conference. My talk was on Paper bags from Independent Bookshops and a version of it can be read here.
It was a wonderful day and I really enjoyed everyone’s talks and the general spirit of boredom that was present.
I was recently chosen to be a poet-in-residence in a London garden as part of the 2016 Re-Mixed Borders scheme run by The Poetry School and London Parks and Gardens Trust. For the Open Gardens Squares Weekend in June I will be poet-in-residence at Branch Hill Allotments, Hampstead.
My poem, “Things I Miss” was featured in RAUM Poetry’s Issue 2. I was also quoted in their introduction, which was lovely.
