A POEM FOR SUFFOLK
A Poem for Suffolk reached it’s conclusion earlier this autumn with a four date tour across the county in September visiting Halesworth, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Sudbury. The sixty minute show, featured stories and poems accompanied by Maurice Horhut on the piano, alongside slides and films. We also pubished a Poem for Suffolk book for the tour which is available here and we'll shortly be releasing a series of video poems very soon.
You read some of the poems created during the project (and stories behind them) on the Poem for Suffolk blog. We're hoping to tour the show again in 2016 with a few more workshops along the way. More details to follow.
MILL ROAD HISTORY PROJECT
Over the last year I've also been the poet-in-residence for the Mill Road History project. The Video poem I've been creating - Mill Road of the Mind – was launched at an event in October 2015 and will be available soon online. Watch this space for details.
