Faversham Literary Festival = excitement

The north Kent coast is buzzing this week, thanks to the magnificent Faversham Literary Festival – programme here – with stars like Simon Armitage and Michael Palin visiting, and Will Self and Sebastian Barry to come. I’ll be there helping – feel free to say hello.

On Saturday the Alexander Centre hosts a Poetry Hub with poets including Fiona Sinclair, Nancy Charley and Maggie Butt at noon, Robert Selby and Declan Ryan at 1pm, Louisa Campbell and Jake Nathan with me at 2pm, Julian Bishop and Christopher Horton with Jessica Rose at 3pm, Professor David Herd at 4pm and from 5.15 there’s an open mic hosted by the mighty Angie Dye.

Yes, at 2pm in the Parlour this Saturday I’ll be reading too and I’m just gathering poems to see what works together. There’ll be something new, not read before, most of it from my forthcoming fifth book of poetry Off the Map, scheduled for publication by Lapwing Publications again. Please come!
