It’s been a strange time to publish a poetry book. Looking back to my launch I didn’t think promotion would be particularly easy, but wasn’t prepared for the ‘no live poetry gigs’ Klaxon – agh!
Another positive thing about the last year is the sheer volume and access to poetry courses and events online, Jo Bell’s Try to Praise the Mutilated World – poetry writing project & Aldeburgh Festival for example. I’ve also seen opportunities for disabled artists in the way of sponsored/ discounted places on poetry courses.
Currently I’m working towards a first collection so watch this space!
