And so... a busy week... and it's school holidays... no time to waste...
First off the Poetry Bus print magazine is now available. Go to the Poetry Bus blog (here) and buy, buy, buy! Oh and the next prompt for the online Bus is up already (here).
This Thursday (National Poetry Day) Raymond Vettese and I will be reading some poems at the library here in Montrose – 2-3pm, admission free.
This Friday, of course, it is the big poetry & music event I've been planning for a while – all details here. I think we're going to be getting a pretty good audience so if you are coming get to the venue early. Doors open at 7.30pm – Links Hotel, Montrose.
Originally from the north of England, I live in Angus, Scotland where I walk a lot, think a lot, listen to lots of music, sometimes write poems, sometimes read poems out to other people, sometimes write songs, read all kinds of odd things, watch a bit...oh and I look after my family too.
I sometimes organise poetry and music events - details are usually here (though nothing coming up in the near future). This year I went travelling with my family - photos and notes are here. Now we're back I have moved to a new regular blog - it is here.

You can buy my book (published 2008) from my website if you fancy it (go to 'book' page) or from www.amazon.co.uk if you prefer the comfort of the multinational corporation. My book is printed on recycled paper and card. I have 12 different poetry postcards available too.
