I won the John Tripp Award for Spoken Poetry in 2003. I give poetry readings in a range of venues (indoors, outdoors, in yurts, in IKEA and in more conventional places as well!) In 2008 I was invited to read as part of a three-women set in New York, but as I’ve now given up flying I only perform in places that are accessible without too much carbon emitted.
I am booked by individuals, organisations and venues to read, to run workshops and to talk about my work. Please contact me if you’d like me to come to your venue.
I am part of the Literature Wales Writers on Tour Programme which helps venues to pay for writers.
I also enjoy taking poetry readings into the fresh air. I lead a range of circular walks with Susan Richardson in Wales, the West Country and beyond, with plenty of stops for participants to enjoy performances of landscape-inspired poems en route. Contact us if you’d like to know more.
