Born to Giggle
I have two poems in an exciting new anthology edited by the wonderful Ian Billings, raising money for Save The Children. Born to Giggle also features comic poetry from the likes of John Hegley and Ian Macmillan and is being launched on Monday 26th November.
National Poetry Week
I'm visiting several primary and secondary schools in Essex and London over the next couple of weeks, supporting their National Poetry Day celebrations with workshops and performances. This year's Poetry Day theme is Stars and you can find some excellent lesson plans and resources on the National Poetry Day website.
I regularly visit schools across the country spreading my enthusiasm for spoken word and poetry. If you are a teacher and interested in what I can offer as a poet in schools to inspire pupils to talk, write, perform and have fun with words, do contact us at email@example.com.
