John Lucas's Shoestring Press is publishing a new books of poems by me, Plot and Counterplot. Arrival of the volumes is imminent, perhaps (or perhaps not) in time for Cromer and Sheringham Festival, where I'm reading with Helen Ivory and Jehane Markham at the Shorelines event on Friday night (29th October).

The local launch of P and CP will be at the Scottish Poetry Library, Saturday 20th November, 3.00 for 3.30. Do come if you can!

Shoestring specialises in poets who are "established but unfashionable". This makes being unfashionable sound almost fashionable.

Now I'll get back to publicising other people's work . . .
