Yes, an engaging interviewee with no airs and graces. A poet with a deep vocation who is a mover and shaker.

Black Bough Pushcart nomination update: a lot of nominations through for six poets and poems. Heading towards 300. A shame only 6 nominations can go through but fascinating to see the poems politely jostling their way forward through your voting.

Thanks so far for your nominations for Black Bough-published poems that you want to be put forward for the Pushcart prize. A reassuring mix showing people have gone back to read over issues 1-3. It’s not a popularity contest - it’s about your favourite poems. Respect ✊🏽👍
