Tomorrow, Saturday 24th March marks the launch of two new chapbooks from HappenStance.
If you are in the vicinity of Edinburgh, come along to the Scottish Poetry Library at 3.00 for 3.30pm. The books are Mackerel Wrappers by Martin Cook and Unsuitable Companions, a new anthology of light verse. I have one poem included in this and will be reading it at the launch.
From what I‘ve read so far, some of the funny poems have a barbed centre. They are not all as “light” as that word suggests – so much the better, in my opinion.
