The initial participants list for the March 2007 StAnza Poetry Festival has been released.
I am in there. I’ll be reading at a venue with two other poets.That’s just in case anyone thinks I’ll be sharing a stage with George Szirtes, Ruth Padel, Jorie Graham, Jane Yeh, Sean O’Brien, Polly Clark, Mark Strand, Jackie Kay, Roy Fisher etc. No, I’ll be in this tiny place under the ground, atmospheric and intimate i.e. small.
However, I am delighted to be a part of the event. The only trouble is that I have no readings at all lined up before March and I really will need to get into practice before doing that one. So if anyone reading this wants to hire a poet for an evening’s entertainment, please get in touch.
