I am delighted to have been awarded an Artist Residency in Iceland in 2015.
PoetryFilm Blackboard was a participatory text/art project devised by Malgorzata Kitowski. Participants were invited to write or draw on a blackboard using chalk. A photograph was taken of each person’s blackboard and a montage film was made showcasing all the blackboard contributions.
PoetryFilm Blackboard was commissioned by the Southbank Centre as part of Poetry International and the Festival of Love on 18, 19, 20 July 2014 and took place at the Saison Poetry Library at the Royal Festival Hall.
The venue for the PoetryFilm event is Swindon New College, New College Dr, SN3 1AH.

Many thanks to Hilda Sheehan for the invitation.
Come and enjoy poetry, tea and cake on Sunday 5 October between 2pm-5pm at the October Gallery in Bloomsbury. I will be reciting a poem alongside Aidan Andrew Dun and other poets at this annual fundraising event set up by Nicholas Albery (editor of the Poem for the Day anthology). The event is all about learning a poem by heart and reciting it (not merely reading it out).
Many thanks to Josefine Speyer for inviting me to recite a poem.
The event took place on 26 September 2014.
