Two events in the near future

I´m going to be at the London Poetry Book Fair on Saturday 8 September. The venue is the Candid Arts Trust in Torrens Street, Islington, London. The nearest tube station is Angel. If anyone is in the area and interested in visiting, look me up at the Ward Wood publisher´s table. I´ll give you a private reading of a couple of poems from my collection, Midas Touch. I expect to be in the hall from 11.00 until 13.00 at least and if I´m not actually at the table, I´ll be close by and not gone for long.

The poetry book fair looks like it´s going to be a great event. There are a lot of publishers exhibiting, both mainstream and small independent presses. There are readings all through the day and books for sale, of course, with signings by the poets present. There´s a very good website with full information at:


Then, on Friday 14 September at 18.00-19.00 I´m giving a talk and reading from my novel, The Finn´s Tale, to the Finnish-British Society in Helsinki. The venue address is: Fredrikinkatu 20 A in the centre of Helsinki. I believe that non-members are also welcome. Copies of both The Finn´s Tale and my poetry collection, Midas Touch, will be available to purchase.

I´d love to meet you at one (or both!) of these events.


  1. I didn't realize the London fair had changed venues from last year. I hope to see you there.

  2. Good job I mentioned it then, or you might have gone hiking off to the wrong place! Looking forward to seeing you there.
