HOME STAGE LIVE READING

On Wednesday June 9th, I am reading with the fabulous Colin Herd for Home Stage in the U.K. The event will be streamed live via Youtube.

I’ll be reading animal prose poems from my book The Green Monk, as well as some new work from my manuscript in progress: Hermit Kingdom.

Surrealistic, minimalist, and sometimes fabulist. There’ll be magical journeys. Come join us. Tune in here at 8PM UK time (9th June 2021).

Mercurius Surreal-Absurd Feature

I am just getting started with the surreal-absurd feature for Mercurius Mag. In the coming weeks, we have some stellar poems from Vik Shirley and Chrissy Williams.

To join the conversation, I have featured a few of my own surreal-absurd tales and prose poems.

Gravity Bubbles

In the heat of the first wave of Lockdown, I participated in an collaboration with the poets Calliope Michail and Chris Gutkind. We decided to call it Gravity Bubbles to emphasize both the gravity of the situation (we were all feeling the heaviness of lockdown in the UK and Spain), and the power of art to lift us, distract, redirect us, recreate us.

The collaboration has just been published at The Babel Tower Notice Board. You can read the collaborative project over here.

Later this year, it will appear in print with Prototype Press, in their annual anthology.

Yeah for indie presses. Yeah for keeping on. Yeah for art and survival.

Isolation Collaboration

My friend in London, Chris Gutkind, created an art project to cope with isolation and lockdown. Photos on a cheapo phone camera. Paying attention to small details around his house. Day to day hopes, despairs, and wonders.

Hopefully it will displayed in a gallery sometime this year.

It is available to view now at PERMEABLE BARRIER (an internet art magazine).
