Last night, Joseph Robert and I were at The Poetry Society’s Good versus Evil event at The Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden, London. Over fifteen poets read their verse during an evening of poetry and comedy, hosted by Paul McGrane. My lovely poet hubby and I participated in the fun of course – Joseph Robert involved in a comedy act, while I read four poems from my recently published collection, A Model Archaeologist (available from my publisher Eyewear Publishing and from my online store Meandi Books). Above is a sample reading of ‘Sandland’, one of my featured ‘evil’ poems:


This was my first reading of 2016, and a much-needed flexing of my performance-poetry muscles again, which were rusty after 7 months of litigation, not literature. Luckily my network of fellow poet/writer/editor connections have been very supportive in welcoming me back into the fold. I have been invited to perform at an upcoming literary festival in North London in June. More as it happens…watch this space!
