Upcoming festival reading

by Simon Collings

I will be reading as one of the featured poets at this year’s Tears in the Fence Festival – 20-22 September, full details here. I will also be conducting a short conversation with the poet Peter Larkin by way of introducing his reading on the Saturday evening. I spent time earlier this year working on an academic paper on Peter’s poetry, for a forthcoming collection of essays on his work. I’m a great admirer.  There are many interesting poets  reading this year and it should be a great event. I have two prose poem’s in the next issue of Tears in the Fence magazine, which should be out in time for the festival.
