Meanwhile, other Lockdown treats…

My poem, ‘to know you are female does not help’ is part of these Insect Love Songs, inspired by a workshop given by Fiona Benson. Her project with Arts and Culture at University of Exeter has resulted in the anthoology In the Company of Insects.

Five of us from the Malika’s Poetry Kitchen collective – including Jill Abram, Rishi Dastidar, Charlotte Ansell and Peter Raynard – were able to record poems that we would otherwise have read at The Golden Hinde in April. My poem is entitled ‘You are bible and not much thumbed’.
