I’m still wrestling my place/waste/dissent book to the ground for Influx Press, and I’ll be reading work from it at Bristol’s Hydra Books on May 15th, alongside George F. who is launching his new Influx Press book Total Shambles. We’ll be reading and taking part in a q & a session afterwards as part of the Influx Press curated day of events during the Stoke Newington Literary Festival on Saturday June 6th. I’m excited about place/waste/dissent being published in autumn of this year, and to be part of a bunch of radical, site-specific and challenging writers/poets that make up Influx Press.
Here are the Influx Press events they’ve got coming up . . .
