## Big Book Announcement ##

I’m super happy to let you know that my first book, The Prettyboys of Gangster Town, is going to be released in September 2020 through Fly on the Wall Poetry.

You can read all about my collection here.

It feels great that a press like Fly on the Wall wanted to publish me. They’re a wonderful press and a great match for the poems in my collection.

To have your manuscript described as ” This collection was easy to fall in love with. Honest, hard-hitting, understated and with an endearing style of writing.” also makes me really happy.

There’s lots to be done, but we’ll make sure that every single part of every single poem is as good as it can be.

I hope that you’ll enjoy the book as much as I do, so let me know if I can put you down for a copy πŸ˜‰

Thanks to @at.the.poetry (Insta, Fb) for the image.

Happy National Poetry Day!

What better way to celebrate than by being a magician at the Poetry Funfair, tonight at Nottingham Playhouse. There will be poetry hook a duck, poetry fortune telling, poetry magicians and much more, followed by performances by some of the UK’s top spoken word artists. It’s going to be magic!

Poetry can take you to some fun, interesting and unusual places, but especially to things you’d never normally take part in, except as a punter. Long may it continue πŸ™‚
