At last, following coronavirus delays, my new collection entitled Home appeared in June of last year

(2020.) See Books/Publication and Poems tabs for more on this.

On 25th September 2020 I read at the Cheltenham Poetry Festival (a virtual and virtuous event) to launch my new volume Home. This was a joint book launch with Howard and Marilyn Timms. Their collection Deciphering the Maze is published by Indigo Dreams.


On 4th February 2021 I was privileged to read alongside Annie Ellis and other poets at another Cheltenham Poetry Festival online event. This was the launch of Annie's new collection Nature at a Cost (Time of your Life publications).

My poem Uncharted was judged a Runner Up in the Gloucestershire Writers' Network Cheltenham Literature Festival 2020 competition. The theme for the competition was 'My World'. The poem was read at the festival in a GWN competition event on Sunday 4th October at 5.00pm.


I have recently had poems accepted by a number of journals in this country and the USA, ie The Salopeot;  The Lyric; Ibbetson Street; The Muddy River Poetry Review; Orbis.

In September this year, 2022 I hope to be publishing a new volume of poetry called Uncharted through Graffiti Books.
