Film of me reading ‘Cormorant’

The Cambridge Writing Retreat has been featuring a different poet each day in June in their podcast and on their website. I’m today’s featured poet, reading my poem ‘Cormorant’. 

Cormorant was first published in The Moth magazine in Ireland, then in Abstract magazine New York, and is in my new Bloodaxe collection ‘Return by Minor Road which launches officially on 25 June.¬†

You can read the text of the poem and hear and see me read it here:

You can also watch the video directly on YouTube.

Thanks to Gaynor at The Cambridge Writing Retreat for hosting us.

I’m looking forward to visiting and teaching there again in future.
