I’m very pleased that Therese has included me in the third reading in this series, on May the 3rd, with Sam Duckor-Jones, Chris Price, and Chris Tse. I’ll be reading from my latest collection, New Sea Land (Mākaro Press, 2016), and all being well, I’ll also have a new chapbook at the reading, Big Hair Was Everywhere.
