Stirred Poetry take a poem; Paper and Ink take a story

Stirred, a feminist collective in Manchester who produce zines and put on spoken-word nights, have accepted my found poem "In Love, In Death" for publication.

So pleased to have this piece published by such a driven, forward-thinking publication.

Also this month, Paper and Ink - where I have been published before - have taken a short piece called "Dad, Marilyn, Me",

Paper and Ink is a fantastic publication, and I'm thrilled to have my work featured by them once again.

Links up on the right once the zines are available.

Ripples to be performed at Liars' League in London

Tuesday the 12th of April sees the 9th anniversary and the 100th event for Liars' League London, and my story Ripples has been chosen to feature.

Liars' League is an excellent concept and I'm thrilled to be part of the celebrations...

Unfortunately, I can't make it to the night in person.

I'll post a link to the clip of the reading when it's up .

The Space Beside at Negative Assets

A poem I developed from a flash piece recently has been accepted for print publication in issue 3 of Negative Assets zine. There's a link on the right to their site, where the issue will be available for purchase on release.

I enjoyed the process of cutting the flash piece, originally almost four hundred words, into a poem of about twenty short lines. It's a great exercise for learning about poetry, about words, about brevity, economy of expression, for learning about your own writing.
