A round-up of some new developments on the poetry front:

First of all, I’m pleased to announce that I will be doing a joint event with fellow Write Out Loud poet Alan Prout at Honley Library on 15 October, 7-9pm. We will both be reading from our recently published collections. There will be a guest spot from another fine poet, Anne Broadbent, refreshments and an open mic.

Another exciting event in prospect is a poetry evening by Holmfirth Writers, at Globe Arts, Carr Lane, Slaithwaite, at 7pm on Wednesday 2 October, on the theme of Colour.

Still on the subject of events, it was great to be part of the launch of the Cotton Grass Appreciation Society anthology, at Marsden Library on Saturday evening. There is some great poetry in this book, from such names as Simon Armitage, Gaia Holmes, Jo Haslam, Alison Lock and my good friends Anne Steward and Sally Brown (pictured, centre and right below). I’m thrilled to be in such company, and it was great to meet some of the other poets.

Finally (for now), I’m delighted to have a poem, Light Years, in this great collection from Dempsey and Windle – and what a lovely cover!
