Always a pleasure to be at Cardiff’s most consistently hospitable poetry event – First Thursday at Chapter, Market Street, Canton – in this case with sneak previews of a new collection and a new collaboration due this year.
Congratulations to the gently assiduous organisers of the all-day Poets for the Planet event in London on Saturday 8th February - raising money, in my case, for Earthwatch, a charity that 'works with people worldwide through scientific research, to inspire, educate and engage them in conservation and creating a global community of informed, impassioned people to take action to protect the environment’ - https://www.earthwatch.org.uk
My part in it was a 10-minute slot among many other voices as well as two drop-in micro-workshops - writing together in the spirit of Japanese renga. My thanks to everyone who dobbed in a bit to the JustGiving fundraising page.
