Things I've done in the last week

This week has been incredibly busy! I performed at the penultimate Utter! poetry show, down in London last Tuesday; co-hosted another lovely Fen Speak open mic night in Wisbech on Wednesday; and did a support set for the Attila the Stockbroker and Future of Music gig in Norwich on Saturday.

We've also just finalised the cover designs for a new pamphlet of poetry, which will hopefully be printed before Christmas. And I've been writing some new poems too!

On top of all that, we've launched this year's Fenland Poet Laureate competition. So, if you're a budding poet living in the Fens, write us a poem and you could be in with a chance of being crowned* Fenland Poet Laureate 2015! (For eligibility criteria and information on how to enter, check out the Atelier East website.)

So yeah. Apologies for the gap in blog posts over the last few weeks - I've just been a bit busy. Normal service will resume on Sunday.

*PS There is no crown. 'Tis but a metaphor.  There is a trophy though - so get writing those Fenland poems!


  1. You lied you just want to keep the crown all for yourself! xx
