Scottish poet Colin Herd and I did a collaboration for European Poetry Night. I wrote and read the poem ‘Jessica Bantje is still easy on the eyes and has kept the field hockey body. Today I’m reading that her husband has taken their three daughters to New York City and she’s ready for a day of pampering.’
To celebrate the ten year anniversary of Rich Mix in London a special celebratory Camarade event brought together some of the best known pairs from the series, all of whom had their debut at Rich Mix, alongside some brand new commissioned pairs of poets, invited especially for the night. Clover Peake and I did another collaboration. We chose to write about family members and I wrote another poem to my mom called ‘Home’.
Five writers were invited to respond to ‘Lexicon’, an exhibition of sculptures and video by Alida Sayer at Marsden Woo Gallery in London. The piece I wrote is ‘Mamma Mammone’.

Nemici, part of the Enemies Project curated and organised by poet and vanguardist Steven J. Fowler, brought together Italian poets from all over Italy and Europe, to work in collaboration, as pairs, with a series of British poets.
