My new collection, ‘The Great Animator’ will be published in February.
To launch the book I’m delighted and honoured that I’ll be reading with the American poet Michael Waters and the Romanian born poet Mihaela Moscialue. It is worth clicking on the links as above as these are two very interesting and highly regarded poets, and I am looking forward to listening and learning from them both. It is definitely worth clicking on the link to the read the review of Mihaela’s latest book by John Lucas.
John’s style, clarity and forthright opinions are a breath of fresh air in a poetry reviewing culture that often fails to explain why the reviewer thinks something is good or not good, and to incorporate aspects of poetics and wider cultural contexts in a concise, clear and engaging way.
Readings will be at Leicester on March 11th and in London the following week. There may also be a reading in Manchester.
All that remains is to send the typescript to the printer along with the artwork I have commissioned from graphic art student Ayo Byron.
As you recommended, I read the review by John Lucas – impressive!
I’m so lucky to have him as my editor.
Congratulations! Sounds like a fantastic event.
I loved Mihaela Moscaliuc’s first collection Father Dirt. How did I not know that she had a second one out? Will have to search for it. And will come to the reading in London, I hope!
Thank you. Hope to see you in London.
Congratulations – will look out for Manchester.
Thank you David.
