In Canada the next fortnight: I will be reading from, and launching, two new collections from the past two years, which complement each other, England Is Mine (Punchy Books, Montreal, 2011) and When All My Disappointments Came At Once (Tightrope Books, Toronto, 2012). I haven't been to Canada since 2007, so I look forward to catching up with friends, and meeting new poets and poetry readers. Dates below.
