Reading Reading 18th June

So, next Friday night many of you will be in the Berkshire area and sick of football. Luckily, I'm reading at the Poets' Cafe in Reading, hosted by poetry superhero AF Harrold. Details:

Friday 18th June 
Poets’ Café at South Street Arts Centre, South Street, Reading, RG1 4QU 
8pm for 8.30pm

In addition to the normal open mic part of the evening, in which everyone and anyone is welcome to share a piece off their work with the warm and welcoming crowd, we have a special guest reading from Tony Williams, whose latest and first collection On The Corner Of Arundel Lane And Charles Street has recently been published by Salt Publishing. Here’s a nice little review from the TLS

Home again, home again

Just back from a strange week's holiday in Lincolnshire – mainly made strange by the fact that I had to depart for two job interviews during the course of it. Didn't get either job, but did get to spend a large proportion of my hols sitting on hot trains in a suit. Bof.

But I have also returned with a full first draft of a new poem – one in which the conceit is clear and the meaning unparaphrasable (i.e. one with much promise).
