News in brief

 

Just come back from another excellent event – this time the premiere of Mr Larrikin’s play Camusflage Krokodial at Hoxton Hall. I got to operate the follow spot, which was particularly exciting.

My poem ‘Swans in Thames’ has just been published by the very reputable London Magazine (hence the image above). Go buy it.

And on another note, I’ve been described as ‘confidently net-native’ by Mary Harrington on the Institute for the Future of the Book’s blog if:book. I think I exaggerated my time spent online though. I’m not that much of a geek. Am I? Okay, a little. Mary also namechecks the marvellous Master Dunthorne.

I’m currently working up a little think-piece about literature and the internet – specifically suggesting a number of useful analogies between contemporary and medieval literary culture – and will publish it here soon.
