Restarting the Blog
I'm going to start up this blog again - essentially as a reviews platform, and maybe with the occasional new poem by someone I like. I'm going to start off with a review of Quite Frankly by Peter Hughes. I don't think there's enough reviewing of poetry these days.
I'm a poet with several books out, the latest being Calling Myself on the Phone (available from www.poetrybusiness.co.uk) and Travelator (available from www.saltpublishing.com and with poems on the net and in magazines. I teach creative writing and run workshops, and I read my poems in public at any given opportunity. I also occassionally paint.
