Hi,  thanks for dropping by. It's October when   The clock leaps back and time sprints the final leg of the year.  

It Black History Month here in the UK and National Poetry Day on October 7th. personally I think this is the time for poets to take a holiday.

Instead we at The Southbank Centre launch   GLOBAL POETRY SYSTEM. It's a way to map your world online.   There’s also the prize giving of The Foyles Poetry Prize.  

Besides I’ll be on stages throughout the month in Covent garden, Chelsea, Bath, Westminster  Greenwhich, Newbury and   Grimsby and more. Check the readings page (on the right) for details or click here. Catch me on BBC Radio 5 at Simon Mayo’s book review on 29th October.  

Keep a watch on the  BLOG for offline news online. My book Listener is in the picture on the left. Click and it takesyou to Amazon where you can read a few of the poems.  The picture to the right is by Dominique Brewster.
