I'll be teaching a week long residential course at the Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre in Wales with Hollie McNish. A course designed to focus on enjoying your writing, and relishing reading your work aloud, we will also be joined for a guest reading by the wonderful Luke Wright. This will be a great week spent well and in fine surroundings.
Full details of the course can be found here.
Very much looking forward to being part of the Caught by the River stage at this year's Port Eliot Festival, we have some wonderful poets with us as well - Mona Arshi, Zaffar Kunial, Hollie McNish and of course Martha Sprackland.
The rest of the literary line-up looks pretty fanstastic as well...
I'll be reading some poems, including my favourite William Morris compositions, alongside Martha Sprackland, at this evening event at The William Morris Gallery, co-curated with The Vine Collective.
There's lots of other stuff going on, details of which can be found here.
I'll be reading some poems at a very special Caught by the River Social Club event in Bristol on Friday 2nd October. The line-up, as always when Richard King and Jeff get their heads together, is incredible and it will be taking place in the artist Nick Hand's print studio, so this really should be one not to miss.
Ticket info here.
I'll be reading poems, and talking with Jeb again about songwriting and storytelling as well as hopefully signing some books at the Good Life Festival, held at the Hawardene Estate on the 18th, 19th and 20th of September. There will be a Caught by the River shop and the line-up already looks great...

This August the good people at Caught by the River are hosting a week long festival of events, readings, workshops, music, art - everything the site is about, but in person, basically. The venue is the wonderful-looking Fforest, and the whole thing looks great... it can't really fail to be, can it?
I'll be running a workshop on writing about landscape during one of the days, and will also be in conversation with a real hero of mine, Jeb Loy Nichols, talking about writing, songs, poems, art and country music.
