And so, the work as Fenland Poet Laureate begins in earnest!
Today, I had my first ever BBC radio interview - talking to Tony Gillham on BBC Cambridgeshire. Tony was standing in for Sue Dougan, who usually hosts the afternoon show, and who had very kindly invited me to come on and talk about being the Fenland Poet Laureate. Sue took a real interest in the FPL last year, and I'm hoping I'll be able to go back on the show and promote some of the FPL projects and events throughout the coming year.
I was so nervous about this radio interview, but Tony put me at ease right away with his conversational style. I managed to forget to say half the things I wanted to mention, but I still had a great time and hopefully I didn't babble too much!
The whole radio show is available to listen to online from Friday 8th March until Friday 15th March - so do go check it out if you're interested. You can find it here.
