Wonderful evening at the Heong Gallery, Downing College. I helped to select and curate the poems for the Gloria Arts After Dark event. Even got to read out 'Wind' by Ted Hughes. Quite appropriate after Storm Angus shook my own house to the foundations the other day. Special thanks to Hannah Machover for inviting me to contribute.
Check out the poems and artwork that inspired their inclusion here and visit the gallery if you get the chance. The exhibition 'Portraits of Place' is on until mid January.
Amazing moment: going outside for a breath of fresh air and finding this leaf dancing in the breeze, hanging from a totally invisible gossamer thread.
I currently teach English, French and Philosophy at St John's College School in Cambridge, UK. I am also Head of Poetry and have been inspiring young people to get reading and writing poetry for over 16 years.
