Poet Laureate To Be

Hello and Welcome! I've the honour to have been appointed as the new Poet Laureate for Derbyshire, succeeding Cathy Grindrod who's been wearing the laurels for the last two years. You can read about her achievements here

She'll be handing over the baton on BBC Radio Derby next Thursday 4th October, National Poetry Day

I'll be out and about flying the poetry flag in Derbyshire, meeting budding and established poets, reading my poems and running poetry workshops over the next two years. Look forward to meeting you soon!
