Readings to launch New Poetries V

I’m delighted to say that New Poetries V is now published, and I’m participating in a couple of events to help launch it. Next Thursday, 13th October, at the Bluecoat in Liverpool, 3.30pm, I’ll be doing a reading, along with NPV contributors Evan Jones and Vincenz Serrano, followed by an open-mic session. This is part of the Bluecoat’s Chapter and Verse literary festival – you can see the whole programme here. And on Wednesday 9th November, at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester, I’ll be taking part in an evening launch event with readings from a number of contributors to the anthology.
