Synaesthesia in haiku & upcoming publications

This month’s Poetry Pea podcast is a special on the theme of synaesthesia. I had sent in a few haiku, and  one was chosen to be read during the episode. Many thanks to Patricia!

You can listen to the podcast or read the transcript here.

I’m also excited to be able to tell you that I have upcoming publications with The Cicada’s Cry (who make a wonderfully creative haiku zine); Frogpond; and Emma Press, who are putting together an anthology on the topic of illness. The anthology is due to be released next year in the UK.


Just a bit of news. I have just finished a poetry course with Manchester Metropolitan University, and during the course I wrote a poem which I have called ‘Sitting Room with Circus Lion’. I got a good review for it from another student (thank you Igor), and I’m reasonably happy with it as it stands, but to be sure I’ll leave it for a few weeks and then have another look.

Later this week, I’ll be posting my new microfiction ‘Theseus’s Ship’. So check back if you would like to read it!

And finally, I recently had a haibun accepted by haibun and tanka prose journal Haibun Today. The new issue is out now, so head over there if you would like to read the piece:
