Little Creatures Launch at The Blue Teapot, with Anne Caldwell

 Last Thursday my collection Little Creatures: Poems of Insects, Small Mammals and Micro-organisms was launched at The Blue Teapot, Mytholmroyd, as part of the 2017 Mytholmroyd Arts Festival, with poetry from myself and special guest Anne Caldwell, among many other poets.

 

 Anne read from her two Cinnamon Press collections Talking to the Dead and Painting the Spiral Staircase, and kindly obliged my request to read three poems specifically linked to our "Little Creatures" theme - The North American Wood Frog, Chinese Fire-Bellied Newt, and of course Slug Language.


 I will be writing about those poems in more detail in the coming weeks, but for now here are the videos of Anne's readings:

I am grateful to Kirstie and Pete at The Blue Teapot, and to Annie Harrison and Annie Lawson from the Mytholmroyd Arts Festival for organizing the evening.
