Poetry Reading in Warwick, Tuesday 20th January
Sorry it's so small, you have to click on it to enlarge!
Some excellent news. I heard today that I have a new poem going into the next issue of Poetry Review.
I wrote it during my Arvon retreat at Totleigh Barton, late last summer, when I was supposed to be writing my novel. I did, in fact, manage several thousand words a day, but also squeezed out some short poems during those long afternoons in my bedroom, listening to the cooks arguing in the kitchen below.
Good to know, since my novel has not yet found a home, that at least this little poem - a very slender piece, 'after Sappho' - will be published out of my efforts that week.
