I am off on my travels shortly. London this week for a networking meeting with writers who also coach that I have organised through NAWE,
I am bringing together writers who have trained with NAWE/Arvon and RD 1st (Debs Barnard) on an accredited coaching course that ran in 2011 and 2012. It will be great to see everyone.
Then off to Paris next week with Hebden Bridge’s Junior Brass Band (on tour!). I am hoping it won’t be too hot for the band to play.
I am then reading in Berlin the following week. This photograph is one of my father’s pictures from 1963 that have inspired some recent poems. I have been working on a new book to take with me to Germany with artist Jack Wright. The book, called ‘After Image’ will be a handmade, limited edition artist’s book featuring the poems I have written about Aberdeen and Berlin in the last two years. Further details to follow. If you want to pre-order a copy please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Wish me luck!
