I have also been grafting, with a review of Julia Bird’s new book Hannah and the Monk appearing on Eyewear - also picked up by Salt Confidential
Other news - my poem Gaudí’s Workshop, June 6th 1926 is forthcoming in the next issue of Wolf Magazine (the launch is on 8th December with readers including Clare Pollard, Ruth Padel and Michael McKimm) and two poems, Members Only and Getting to the Point, will feature in The City Anthology published by Tall Lighthouse in December.
More to follow …… and I promise I won't wait an eon before updating next time.
