Between Crossing & Passing on Poetry Jukebox

I’m absolutely delighted to have my poem Between Crossing & Passing featured on the mobile Poetry Jukebox, as part of the CS Lewis A Deeper Country curation. As a huge CS Lewis fan it’s an extra thrill to be part of this one.

CS Lewis Talk

I’m really looking forward to giving a talk on CS Lewis as part of the Linenhall Library’s Writers on Writers Festival. I’ll be focussing mainly on the Chronicles of Narnia and looking at the magic and imagination of the books, as well as the layer of spirituality that runs through them.

The wonderful actor James Doran will be reading some extracts. The talk and Q&A runs on 12th May from 1.30pm-3pm and admission is free. More on this and all the other great events here.
