I was right about the Jan Stablemates – it was so overwhelming that I even forgot to take a picture of the poets. I’m excited about the next one too as three poets who don’t live in London are coming from East and West – Cinnamon poets Martin Figura (Norwich), Kathleen M Quinlan (USA via Canterbury) and Lesley Ingram (Yorkshire via Ledbury). You don’t wanna miss it, nor do you have to, advance booking available! It’s on Thur 23rd Feb.
I’ve also been invited to feature at Loose Muse Winchester on Mon 13th Feb. I’m a regular at the London version and am sure this one will be just as lovely. More details of both of these are on my events page.
I have just submitted a funding application for Stablemates – I found it very difficult. I’m sure any of you who have made an application like this will sympathise, but it’s completely new territory to me so I’m grateful to those who offered advice and encouragement. I should know by mid March whether it has succeeded – if so, Stablemates is going to get EVEN MORE EXCITING!
