All Along the East Coast


Being Notice of a few Readings and Workshops coming soon to a Town possibly — hopefully — somewhere near you.

On Monday 4 October, I’ll be in Newcastle reading alongside Rob A Mackenzie and Red Squirrel Press poets Kevin Cadwallender, Tom Kelly, Eleanor Livingstone and Alistair Robinson. It’s part of Red Squirrel week and is likely to take place at Gallery North, Northumbria University, although that’s not confirmed yet. I’ll let you know when it is. The reading will start at 6 pm.

On the morning of Wednesday 20 October, I’ll be doing a poetry masterclass for the creative writing students at Dundee University. Then, at 1 pm, there’ll be a reading, open to the public. Further details when I have them.

At some point over the weekend of 22 to 24 October, I’ll be reading at Hidden Door. Throughout the weekend, you’ll be able to see my collaboration with Alastair Cook as part of the Impossible Journeys project, of which more in due course.

Don’t forget, there’s also my Linlithgow Book Festival poetry workshop at 11 am on Saturday 30 October. One and three quarter hours in the Mel Gray centre by the canal basin — a much, much nicer venue than in previous years. Tickets are £10 and going fast, I’m told!

If you’re not exhausted by this point, I probably will be (don’t forget my Poetry School online course is running through all this time!) but there’s still one more reading to squeeze in: back to Newcastle on Wednesday 24 November with the same line-up as for the October gig but, this time, at the Lit & Phil! The reading starts at 7 pm and it’s £5/£3 to get in. A bargain, with that many on the bill, but it’s also a fundraiser for the Lit & Phil’s appeal.

Hope to see you at one or another of these!
