My Poet's Boots - Final.png

my poet's boots

Wednesday 28th June 2023
Didsbury Arts Festival

'That pull. The bards

down ancient line

who sang by tribal fire & moon;


up it comes their call

through cordage wound from salt & verse;

through teeming ground, the primal pulse;

throbbing in my Poet’s Boots.'

'My Poet's Boots' was a free gathering for Didsbury Arts Festival on the evening of Wednesday 28th June 2023 at Saison in West Didsbury. I shared some of my amazing journey as an emerging poet; how I'm throwing off old layers and ways of being and stepping into my poet’s boots. I was joined by Cherrelle Anne and Sean Fitton, two other emerging poets working out what they want to say about the world - and how to say it.

I also appeared at Didsbury Arts Festival's free Opening Event on Saturday 24th June 2023, sharing my poem 'The Song of Ryebank Fields'.
