Manifestations, my first full collection of poetry, will be launched at Ilkley Literature Festival on the 5th October. At the launch reading I’m delighted to be sharing the bill with Jo Shapcott who was my mentor during my time on the Jerwood / Arvon Mentoring Scheme. Jo helped me to develop the manuscript for the book and it will be very special to see her again at the launch.

Further details and tickets are available on the Ilkley Literature Festival website.
