Happy May & next poetry event

Summer’s a coming in! After Beltane, the festival of bright fire and fertility, it’s May day. It’s a day of tradition in the UK – of old pagan ritual, of celebrating workers’ rights.

And to welcome in the summer further, and to celebrate women’s rights and writing, the next event that I’m doing is the Loose Muse Anthology launch at 3 Minute Theatre in Manchester. I’ll be reading the two poems that were accepted for this book: ‘Polar bear hunting’ and ‘The Owl and the Raven: an Inuit legend’. I’m a bit excited by this.

If you can make it, do come along; 3MT is a lovely, quirky venue nestled on the ground floor of Afflecks Palace.
