She Grrrowls is settled into its new home at Apples & Pears – it’s crazy to think that half a year has gone, and 16th July will be the last event before the summer break (all being well, returning in September). Check out what you missed last week:
In other news, I’m currently working on an anthology of ten poets from the She Grrrowls alumni after receiving funding from Ideas Tap to commission some new poems. I just need a publisher now! I’m hoping to get it out for December to have a launch event.
I’ve also been listening to this radio documentary, with poetry by Kate Tempest after having listened to lots of clips shared by Falling Tree. Again, you can listen to it here:
Speaking of radio, I’ll be having some poems featured on Audio Book Radio. Tune in on Friday 26th June at 2pm, 10pm and Saturday 27th at 6am.
I’ve been working with the fantastic Vidisha Bansal, who’s not only a great radio producer and musician, but is comparably very young and just got into her first choice for university! She invited me to her eighteenth birthday party. I feel old. We were working with Falling Tree (Eleanor McDowall and Alan Hall) and Ross Sutherland to produce a poetry documentary of 3-5 minutes. You can check out her website here.
