I’ve a busy time over the next couple of weeks as Sheffield’s First Poetry Festival gets into swing. On Sunday 27th I’m part of an arts walk, followed by a poetry garden party, hosted by Art in the Park:

Sunday, 27 March, 12.30 to 1.30pm Poetry Walk.
Meet at the Francis Newton (used to be Aunt Sally’s) entrance, Clarkehouse Road, S10 2LA A free event.

Sunday 27 March, 2 to 5pm, Garden Poetry with many poetry and art activities, LYNWOOD GARDENS. (If raining this will go ahead at the Broomhall Centre, Broomspring Lane). A free event

As a member of  the Tuesday Poets, I’m part of the performance “Out of Place”: Tuesday 29 March, 7.30 – 9pm, Showroom 5 (not in Bank Street Arts Centre as previously advertised). Tickets £4 / £3 (conc) from The Showroom Box Office, or on the door

As one the students on Sheffield Hallam’s MA writers I’ll be reading on Sunday 3 April 6.30pm – 8pm at Bank Street Arts. Tickets £4 / £3 from The Showroom Box Office, or on the door

and again on Wednesday 6 April 6.15 – 7.45pm, Bank Street Arts Centre a free event (this is a mix of experienced writers from the MA and those who are just starting out, all of whom will be airing brand new work).
