Unfortunately, I was due to perform at Edinburgh International Book Festival with Sam Riviere this year. Covid-19 has seen to it that this is not possible. With this in mind, and if you are able, please support my independent publisher Red Squirrel by purchasing the book – and grab a copy of Sam’s from Faber and Faber too! Hope to see you all face-to-face/mask-to-mask soon!
Thanks to Hugh McMillan for inviting me into the backroom as part of his series of pestilent poets. Go and check them all out here:
This is my Glasgow launch date. I’m reading with Jock Stein, Finola Scott, and Moya Cannon at St. Mungo’s Mirrorball on 6th Feb at 7pm. £7/5 on the door. Would love to see you there if you’re Glasgow-based!
I’m very excited to be launching my first full collection Sacrifice Zones at the Scottish Poetry Library on Saturday 1st Feb, 1pm. It is a free event with fellow Red Squirrel authors, Stephen Watt and Jane Bonnyman. Would love to see you there!
Looking forward to trying out some work from my forthcoming book Sacrifice Zones (Red Squirrel, 2020) at Lovecrumbs (West Port) on 13th September, at 7pm. I’ll be performing with Elizabeth Rimmer, Thomas Stewart, and Anne Hay and there will definitely be cake! Hope to see you there.
I’ll be reading some oldish and some newish poems at regular poetry night ‘Vespers’ on 4th June at the Scottish Poetry Library with Eileen Chong and Raman Mundair – see here for details. £3 entry, £1 raffle tickets. The bar will be open shortly after 7pm, readings start sharp at 7.30pm. Would love to see you there!
