Good news. I have been appointed Poet in Residence at one of my favourite local places, The Bishopsgate Institute. This is a first for me and them. Very exciting. I’ll be spending time there in April researching in their archives, talking to staff and visitors and finding material in the nooks and crannies of their historic building.
By the end of the Residency I will have produced a series of poems, some of which will be displayed in the Institute. I’ve also curated two events for June and July, where I will ‘premiere’ new material, and introduce some of my favourite poets. This mini-series is called Visions of the City and I’ll announce the lineups very soon.
Finally, I’ll be documenting my experiences on this blog, so if you want to keep track you know what to do!
