Episode 2 of Poetry Worth Hearing will be available on or before February 14th. It will include extracts from a reading by award-winning poet, A.B. Jackson, where he reads from his new book, The Voyage of St Brendan, recently published by Bloodaxe Books. In addition, there is an interview with Louise Larchbourne, where she talks about her mother, the poet Rosamund Stanhope, whose first book, So I Looked Down from Camelot has recently been republished. Louise also reads a sample of Stanhope's poems. We also have a new long poem from Lucy Ingrams as well as other new work from poets up and down the country.
Episode 3 should be coming out in March. I'm aiming for St Patrick's Day, 17th March. However, I need your contributions. Please send me recordings of up to 4 minutes of previously unpublished work. You can do it on your phone or using the record function on your computer. More detailed advice can be found on a previous post. You don't need to include your name on the recording although it is fine to introduce or explain poems when you think it necessary. Please also send me the texts of poems, preferably in Word, and a short biographical summary of yourself, including publications. I would also welcome suggestions for short features -about 10 minutes in length - which could be included in future episodes.
So don't hold back - send me your work and ask your poetry friends to contribute as well.
