To celebrate National Poetry Day this Thursday 6 October, here’s my reading from my latest poetry collection, A Model Archaeologist.

I’m really delighted with the lovely casebound hardcover of my 80 poem collection. Having a hardcover version also makes for a great memento for my bookshelf at home and as a copy for the British Library for legal deposit, where it’ll be available to peruse in the reading room, if you live in Yorkshire.

With the hardcover version of A Model Archaeologist

Can you tell in this video that I’m actually suffering from an awful strep throat infection? If you compare this video to my others, you’ll notice that I actually sound like I either chain smoke 80 a day (I’m a non smoker, btw) or you’ll hear the weariness in my sigh at the end (lol). I had considered recording the video again, but my throat felt like sandpaper and I might actually have ended up with laryngitis at the effort.
