Hearing various voices*

I'm very glad to be in the latest issue of Hearing Voices magazine, edited Jonathan and Maria Taylor, ISBN 0-9551800-7-4, 978-0-9551800-7-1, £3. Other poets in this issue include David Caddy, Alison Brackenbury, Alan Baker, Jacqui Rowe and Todd Swift, from whose blog post I nicked most of this text (thanks, Todd!).

To order , please send a cheque made payable to Crystal Clear Creators to Jonathan Taylor, Crystal Clear Creators, c/o Department of English and Creative Writing, Faculty of Humanities, Clephan Building, De Montfort University, Leicester, LE1 9BH, U.K. Postage and packing is free.

A subscription to all three issues of Hearing Voices costs £8 or £7 to members of Crystal Clear Creators. You can also subscribe to the third and fourth issue, which costs £5.50 for non-members, £5 to members.

Meanwhile, or rather, about a month later, I'm looking forward to the Bloodaxe Poetry Lectures at the Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts, given this year by Sean O'Brien on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the week commencing the 5th of December. The lectures are free - it's a turn-up-on-the-day kind of event - and they will 'explore the depiction of England in the work of contemporary poets... and discuss the importance of myth-making in present-day poetry in England'. Sounds ace. And on the next night, Thursday the 8th December, I'm reading with Peter Bennet at the same venue (not quite so free - £6/4), and hopefully being 'distinctively English' in some shape or form. Come and see some or all of the above if you can.
