A date for the diary: on Monday 24th of May at 8pm, I will be a virtual guest of Forest Poets, reading poems from Something so wild and new in this feeling, alongside the wonderful poet Sarah Westcott, who will be reading from her new poetry collection, Bloom. The event, billed as The Two Sarahs, will take place via Zoom. Details will be made available via social media, so do look out for Forest Poets on Twitter, @ForestPoets.
