Lovely write-up of our reading at London Book Fair on the Deilbiri blog.
This really is a corner at LBF and sadly rather a noisy one, principally because of its proximity to coffee shops!

We’re thrilled to be joining our publishers Holland Park Press as delegates at the London Book Fair on March 13th, 2019. We’ll be reading from our book as part of the Poet’s Corner features on March 13th between 11.30am-12.30am. You can find out more about our event here. There are some great speakers during the whole 3-day event to enjoy, and our wonderful publishers Bernadette and Arnold from Holland Park Press will be there too – so if you’re visiting the fair do pop by their stand to say hello. Hope to see you there.

We didn’t photocopy any bits of our anatomies. No one snogged the guy from accounts. But we did raise a glass of bubbly to a productive year of London Undercurrents – a toast to poems written, performed and published.
And here’s to a 2015 filled with more women’s voices from north and south of the river, and happiness, health and peaceful living.
