Publications/Repertoire/Productions & Background Experience
Books of poetry: The Puzzle Heart (Salmon, 1999), Remember the Birds (Salmon, 2005), In the Night Horse (Salmon, 2010) and an anthology Forgotten Light: An Anthology of Memory Poems (AA Farmar, 2003).
For the Creative Writing or Poetry Writing sessions, I would like small groups of no more than fifteen students who are interested in writing. Students should come prepared (with notebook and pen) for a participating workshop and be willing to write and read their work aloud. At the reading Q & A sessions, I would read from my own work - all three collections - focussing on a single theme, eg childhood, memory, painter's lives. Or I could give a reading from another contemporary poet's work, on the subject of eco-poetry. In both instances I would bring copies of poems for each session. This would be followed by questions from students.
