1st-2nd December – Dear Year – a weekend exploration of creative writing and personal development in London. Limited spaces only left. To find out more, go here
This has been a wonderful and busy year, not least through my role as Canterbury Laureate. I have spoken to students from Liverpool John Moores University, the University of Kent, and Bath Spa University, have read at the LSE Literary Festival, the Whistable Oyster Festival, Herne Bay Festival and the Canterbury Festival, aboard a punt at night, on a decommissioned Light Vessel, in an Oxfam shop window (no one bought me) and in the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral. I’ve even read at the Troubadour, famous for offering Bob Dylan his first UK gig (and at which I learnt that the collective noun for poets might be cornucopia).
Don’t tell anyone, but next year may be all about trains!
