Hi, Welcome to my webpage and thanks for dropping by.It’s July and the heat is on.

I’m in beautiful South Africa for the first  ten days,  at The Grahamstown Festival and then  Market Theatre in Johannesburg.  

On returning  catch me  at The London Literature Festival and the Manchester International Festival. You can see a full listing of event details by clicking  on the readings page on the right.

The events at The London literature festival are part of my new programming strand Access All Areas.

This month sees the launch of Global Poetry System.  GPS  is a means of putting poetry on the map.

I’ll be live on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live at 9am on 18th July and shall wrap the month up on 24th at The Queen Elizabeth Hall reading “Music is My Mistress” by Duke Ellington for the talented young composer arranger and player Peter Edwards.
