At the end of this month, I'm going to be reading at Poetry in the Pub, as part of the Chiddingly Festival, in East Sussex.
It takes place at the Six Bells, Chiddingly, on Wednesday, September 28th, with doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets are £7.
The other guest poets are David Swann,whose collection The Privilege of Rain (Waterloo Press, 2010) was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry; and Maureen Jivani, whose book Insensible Heart (Mulfran Press, 2009) was shortlisted for the London New Poetry Award. It's all hosted by Clare Best, whose collection Excisions is forthcoming from Waterloo Press this month, and whose HappenStance chapbook Treasure Ground (2009) I can heartily recommend (Clare will also be reading).
You can book online here, or call 01825 872 401 (between 7pm and 9pm, or book by post, enclosing a cheque to 'Chiddingly Festival Committee' mailed with SAE to Chiddingly Festival Box Office, Chauntlers, Chiddingly, Lewes, E Sussex BN8 6HD.
