Hackney Word Festival

The Last Word @ Cafe Oto, Friday 2 October with Nathan Penlington,  Cath Drake, Shane Solanki. and Poem In Between People, translated into BSL by sign interpreters Russ Alderson was loads of fun in the new look trendy Dalston and a great way to end the fab Hackney Word Festival, Write to Ignite.

Thanks to the Hackney Museum for hosting my workshop in September.

Big love to all those unsuspecting people who were set upon by the Guerilla Poets in September. The Guerillas continue spreading the love…
