I have some exciting news!
I’ve been asked to be poet-in-residence for BBC2’s coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show next Tuesday (19th May). Have to visit the show during the morning, write a performance poem in response to what I see, then perform it in one of the show gardens on BBC2’s evening programme at 8pm! At the end of the show I’ll apparently be joining the two presenters, Alan Titchmarsh and Joe Swift, for a chat and another short poem.
It’s going to be challenging, that’s for sure. But I really want to try and savour the experience and enjoy.
