Hugely enjoyed my guest poet slot at Pulsar Poetry Night yesterday. Such a lovely venue – the Goddard Arms in a little Wiltshire village at the foot of a chalk cliff – only about eight miles from Swindon, yet it was so green and peaceful that it felt like the nearest town was several hours away.
The tireless David Pike (editor of Pulsar poetry magazine) organises and co-ordinates these events on a more-or-less bi-monthly basis. He also plays the acoustic guitar to open the evening, shares some of his own work and makes live sound recordings of a number of the poems that are read. You’ll be able to listen to these, mine included, on the Pulsar website soon.
Thanks to David and Gill Pike for the opportunity to read, for the very warm welcome and for the above photo too!
