It’s really a pleasure to be reading at two events at Aye Write! this year. The first will be on 18 April at 6pm. It’s the pre-launch for ‘Triptych: Our Real Red Selves’ out with Vagabond Voices, with myself, Harry Giles and Marion McCready. This new series is inspired by the beautiful Penguin Modern Poets books that were published in the late 1960s and 70s, and this first Triptych will feature my war poems collection ‘The History of Fire’, Harry’s ‘Drone’ poems and Marion’s poems about childbirth – plenty of passion and hope, fire and blood, humour and wonderment!
