I took part in an excellent event at the Hay Festival on Monday night- the Seren Poetry Gala, with poets Jonathan Edwards, Rhiannon Hooson and Elizabeth Parker, launching the Borderlands pamphlet from Seren’s new series, and also reading a few poems from The Bramble King. The event was made even more special because the great illustrator Chris Riddell did a live drawing session, illustrating the poems as we read them. And what’s more, I got to keep the original sketches!
My next event at the festival is a talk on The Clockwork Crow on Sunday morning at 10am. Event HD82. Some tickets are still available. See Hayfestival.org.
