Between the 4th and 20th October I’ll be the Poet in Residence at the Ilkley Literature Festival. It’s a special year for the festival as it celebrates its 40th anniversary. I’ll be involved in a whole range of poetry events over the two weeks of my residency where I’ll be launching my first full-length collection, hosting a poetry banquet, installing literary artworks around Ilkley, juding the open mic event, taking part in my first Mushaira, working in several local schools and more. You can find the full programme on the Ilkley Literature Festival website.
