A good run of publications recently:
A walrussy ecophrastic (ekphrastic, but about natural history galleries) poem, here on And Other Poems.
I’ll have a couple of poems in Confluence journal, coming up, and two on Atrium I’ll post about later.
You can keep up-to-date with my City Poet work on the Festival of Ideas site, here.
Perhaps most excitingly: my debut pamphlet, Wasted Rainbow, is out with tall-lighthouse in February!
Which is also, conveniently, LGBT+ History Month. The pamphlet has a thread of poems about growing up in Section 28-era censorship – something which has really become vivid to me as an educator working in much more open and progressive schools of the 2010s and 20s!
I hope the pamphlet opens up some conversations about how we should never go back to that repressive agenda. You can pre-order the pamphlet and book for the launch on Feb 13th, here.
If you’re looking for online LGBT+ happenings online in February – we’re also running a six-week wellbeing course for LGBT+ people, Reclaiming the Rainbow, from next Monday 1st. You can book places on that, here.
That’s all for now, folks!
Hope you’re doing OK out there.
Solidarity, Fortitude and Poetry. xx
