    Latitude 2014 - New Voices

    Latitude 2014 – New Voices


    This time last year I was performing at Larmer Tree festival, and now I’ve just come back from Latitude Festival, where I performed as part of the New Voices. It will be the first of five festivals that I will be performing at this summer, and considering how nervous I was and how surreal it seemed, it went really well.

    Nasty Little Press and Festival News

    I thrilled to announce that this July I will be publishing a mini-book of work as an part of the ‘Intro’ series with Nasty Little Press. In 2011/12 I completed an MA in Creative Entrepreneurship (aka Survival Guide for Artists) and one of the goals I wrote done specified getting a pamphlet published by Nasty Little Press, so… two years later, life feels pretty unreal right now. The books have…

    Covent Garden Comedy Club - Saturday 28th June

    Covent Garden Comedy Club – Saturday 28th June

    I got an offer in Time Out for half price tickets to the Covent Garden Comedy Club. The tickets said that the nearest station was Covent Garden; I clearly should have done some research, because it was actually Charing Cross, so we ended up a few minutes late. At the stage, although the host wasn’t Sally-Anne Hayward as advertised, he seemed okay. However, as the night went on his humour jarred…

    Last week at the Roundhouse, Bohdan gave us the task to write a Moskalik* poem. Here is my attempt.

    If someone were to say they were voting for UKIP,
    that it’s their right to flyer outside Iceland.
    Well, let’s just say they might accidently trip,
    and flying over Ruskin Drive, at St Philip’s is where they’d land.

    This is based on a true experience, though my anger was kept at bay in reality.
