Meeting Chris at the City Lit

Yesterday I met Patience Agbabi in the morning at the Royal Festival Hall for my second poetry tutorial as part of the Arvon/Jerwood mentoring scheme. In the afternoon I crossed the river to meet Chris Meade at the City Lit off Kingsway, in order to discuss online presence and setting up a blog – something I have been meaning to do for ages, though slightly afraid – and then in the evening, off to Coffee-House Poetry at the Troubadour for an evening showcase of eight poets from Welsh publisher Seren.
