De-Cabbage Yourself! - Step 4

(photo by Ginger Me, used under a Creative Commons License)

My Cyclone Tour in support of The Opposite of Cabbage has landed in the Bahamas this week, at Nicolette Bethel’s Scavella’s Blogsphere (she also, incidentally, edits the fine webzine of Caribbean poetry, tongues of the ocean). You can hear what I think of workshops and of how the Internet has affected poetry. Then I highlight three poems from the book, link to a wonderful live performance by Portishead, and read two poems. Finally, I contemplate the future, the little I can see of it.

[Next Monday, 29th June, I’m back in Edinburgh with Clare Askew at One Night Stanzas.]
