I'm thrilled to have some of my charm poems appear in the current edition of The Wolf - thanks to James Byrne for publishing them. Lots of great writing to savour in there - also beautiful artwork by Patricia Farrell! (see cover in photo below)
On Wednesday I went, along with my colleague Conrad, and fiction students at Edge Hill University, to the Cheltenham Literature Festival. It was my first time in Cheltenham and so was quite a novel experience for me as well as for the students. We all got to attend two of the several events taking place during the afternoon - I got to hear Alexander Armstrong chat about his arctic adventures and listened to Paula Hawkins reading from, and discussing aspects of, her novel Girl on a Train. Well worth the trip!
The photo below shows the booty I came away with - quite a treat of reading, notebooks, pen and chocolate!
