Photos from the poetry reading

Here are some pictures from the poetry reading in Swiss Cottage library on 15 July. The event was part of the Friday Night Writers series:

Me in full flow.

A pause while I find the next poem to read.

Peter Daniels talking with a member of the audience. Unfortunately, this one is rather dark.

Here I am during the interval, chatting with a member of the audience at the `books for sale´ desk.

Adele Ward, organiser of the Friday Night Writers series, one of the partners of Ward Wood Publishing, and my intrepid editor, serving wine to members of the audience. Listening to poetry is thirsty work! You probably already knew that.

Part of the audience. It was a really good turnout. Peter Daniels is on the left in the front row.

It was a great evening, and now I´m looking forward to my next gig, or gigs I should say: two readings in Dublin with other Ward Wood writers on Friday 16 September at the Irish Writers´ Centre and on Saturday 17 September at The Twisted Pepper cafe. Full details are listed below and I´ll post confirmation of times and addresses closer to the day. If you´re in or near Dublin, I´d love to see you there.

A quick update.....and the promise of more

I´m just back from my travels, including reading at Swiss Cottage library alongside Peter Daniels, and trying to clear the backlog of emails and other tasks that have collected while I´ve been away. I´ll be posting several articles over the coming days, with information, news and updates, including some photos from the Swiss Cottage event.

In the meantime, here´s the link to the article that appeared in the newspaper Tamperelainen last month, from the papers website. It´s in Finnish, which is not surprising, really. I hope Finnish readers of my blog find it interesting and non-Finnish can maybe use the google translator:
