  • June 3: Reading alongside poets Simon Armitage and Frieda Hughes at Coffee House-Poetry at the Troubadour, Earl’s Court in June for ‘what we should have said’ – “an entertaining, enlightening, innovative & unpredictable spoken-word shindig”. An amazing experience, and the time just flew! Above with regular fortnightly reading series organiser Anne-Marie Fyfe, and Frieda Hughes after the reading.
  • May 23: The launch night of the 15 poets x 15 artists collaboration project organised by poet Katrina Naomi. I was teamed up with the painter Tony Hull. What resulted: two almost-classical portraits with unexpected voices.
  • May 4: Reading at the Dugdale Centre, Enfield, with the Highgate Poets.
