28 Sonnets Later - Collection Published

In February 2012, I was asked to take part in a cool project with three brilliant Norwich-based poets: Andy Bennett, Adam Warne and Russell J Turner. The aim was simple: four poets, 28 days, one sonnet per day. It meant that each writer had to come up with a totally new and original sonnet every four days. 

We started out on a blog, but soon, Deadbeat Press had offered to publish all 29 sonnets (we forgot it was a leap year) in a collection. That collection had its launch party last night and is now  available to buy from the Deadbeat Press website:

The most exciting thing for me was the fact that Luke Wright, the poet, writer and organiser of the poetry arena at Latitude Festival, wrote the foreword to the collection. I've admired Luke's poems for a long time, so it was amazing to think that he read some of mine! He describes me as 'a rhyming stand-up' and 'perpetually confused by the modern world'. So pleased.
