Excellent Buzzwords reading last night at The Brown Jug in Cheltenham: Luke Kennard reading from his new pamphlet Planet-shaped Horse Matt Merritt, reading from hydrodaktulopsychicharmonica both with Nine Arches Press. Brilliant titles and highly recommended. A bonus to have George Ttoouli and Simon Turner on the open mic.
I had a really good day with University of Gloucestershire PGCE students and their mentors a few days ago in Gloucester. First time I’ve ever been there. ‘You haven’t been missing much,’ the taxi driver said. Looking forward to going there again tomorrow night – working in a local school with English teachers and speaking at their Arts Award presentation. The Arts Award is such a good initiative – wish they’d had that when I was at school.
