So the tail end of 2015 saw me back with the Barbican Young Poets, doing a few spots with Burn After Reading and being invited to Deptford Cinema to do a reading as part of their superhero season. Oh, I also contended with rising rivers in my hometown.
I’ve been busy doing a lot of writing and reading (I finally have a poetry bookshelf!), especially around how to make a living from my craft. If I have a resolution it’s to try and push forward with my plan to turn what I do into a career.
February and March will see me collaborating with Barbican/Guildhall, firstly on their Dialogue Festival (to be held in Barking) and then at the Barbican Weekender. I’m thrilled to be taking part in these, simply because it’s going to give me a big push regarding collaboration with other poets/artists.
