Reading at Launch of The Somnambulist Cookbook



I was honoured to be asked to read at the launch of Andrew McDonnell's brilliant poetry collection, The Somnambulist Cookbook (Salt Publishing). As the keenest eyed among you will have spotted, that is not me in the photo, but it is Andy. Andy's the nicest bloke and has been a real support and encouragement to me over the years since I took one of his adult ed. poetry classes. I'm not a poet, but poetry has so much in common with flash, and I think having had the chance to experiment with poetry has fed into my writing. It was Andy who persuaded me to try my hand at teaching creative writing, which I am loving doing, now. Great evening.
