I finished Robert Crawford’s Full Volume tonight, which I enjoyed. Earlier in the day, Simon Barraclough’s debut collection, Los Alamos Mon Amour, arrived in the post. I haven’t had time yet to take a look, but I might read a few poems now.
I sent off my entry for this year’s Poetry on the Lake Competition, to be judged by Jo Shapcott. Can’t say anything more about it as the poems are given to the judge without names on them.
I’m doing a short reading at the Tchai Ovna Café in the south side of Glasgow on Friday in the company of several other writers. I'll post more on this tomorrow.
