A POEM FOR SUFFOLK
My latest project A Poem for Suffolk will be reaching it's conclusion shortly with a five date tour across the county in September visiting The Cut in Halesworth (19th), Beccles Public Hall (20th), Hyndman Centre in Bury St Edmunds (23rd), John Peel Centre in Stowmarket (24th) and the Quay Theatre in Sudbury (25th).
It's going to be a 60 minute show, with me accompanied by Maurice Horhut on the piano, alongside slides and films. We're also pubishing a Poem for Suffolk book for the tour and later in the autumn we're be turning it all into a series of video poems.
You read some of the poems created during the project (and stories behind them) on my blog - Parkinspace. Or for more details you can visit the Poem for Suffolk website by clicking here.
MILL ROAD HISTORY PROJECT
OIver 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 - will be launched at an event in October 2015. More details to follow soon...
FIRST COLLECTION TO BE PUBLISHED
And to cap an incredibly busy year, I'll also be publishing my first full collection in November. It's called 'The Swan Machine' and will be published by The Rialto. It will be launched at the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival on the 6th November 2015.
