Poets in Bed
I produce an occasional podcast called Poets in Bed. It is an experiment in intimacy. Episode four is out now.
Poems in Which
I edited the online journal Poems in Which with Nia Davies, Rebecca Perry, Wayne Holloway-Smith and Alex MacDonald. We published work from poets including Mark Waldron, Kathryn Maris, RA Villanueva, Fran Lock, Crispin Best and Sophie Collins. We won ‘Best Magazine’ in the Saboteur Awards 2014.
Best Friends Forever
I edited an anthology of poems on friendship among women, published by The Emma Press in 2014.
The Shuffle Anthologies
As co-organiser of The Shuffle poetry and anthology series (2007-2013) I co-edited three anthologies to showcase the work of poets featured at The Shuffle. My selections included work from Emily Berry, Kate Kilalea, Jack Underwood, Sam Riviere, Oli Hazzard, Heather Phillipson, Rachael Allen and Declan Ryan.
Poetry and Comics
I take part in Chrissy Williams’s Poetry and Comics workshop, which brings together poets and artists to collaborate and experiment across the forms. The latest pieces from these workshops are published here.
‘You Ought to Be In Pictures’ is a poem-essay written for Michelle McGrane’s poetry blog Peony Moon.
