Yesterday I was delighted to see that John Field has reviewed my Nasty Little Intro #8. Last year Field was named one of the top poetry bloggers by Picador, and it was great to see his insight into my poems.
There are still some £2 books available from the Nasty Little Press website, so please do support poets and independent presses alike by buying a copy! Ben Norris has already sold out, so I’ve got some catching up to do – help a gal out! I’d also like to recommend fellow UEA poet Hattie Grünewald’s Intro book. She also does a great brunch blog and updates of her poems on tumblr.
Head over to the Nasty Little Press website to buy my Nasty Little Intro for just £2, or save on postage and packaging by catching me at a festival, gig or She Grrrowls event. There are just 200 copies and both Hannah Jane Walker and Sye Sanders have sold out, so snap them up fast! I highly recommend all the others on offer as I have read them all.
On Friday I’m off to Latitude Festival to perform as a New Voice on the Poetry Stage. I’m extremely excited, and rather overwhelmed at the surreal feeling that I was at Larmer Tree Festival last year and now I’m at lots of different festivals. Teenage Carmina would be proud. Being a strange concoction of introvert + shy girl + quiet one, all my joy is naturally bobbing along with a undercurrent of nervous anxiety. Poets are generally lovely though, so hopefully I’ll be okay and not have to rely too much on the magic fridge I’ve been told about.
On my return I will be collaborating with Not So Popular on the next She Grrrowls event at Blessings in Shoreditch on Wednesday 23rd July. We have Hannah Chutzpah, Selina Nwulu, Amy Acre, Kemi Taiwo, Prudence Chamberlain, Eley Williams and more.
