27th November – Falmouth – Parabola Project Launch

The Launch Event for the third and final Parabola Project, that explosion of literature and design, is tomorrow night at The Rum Bar in Falmouth.

Unfortunately I can’t be there myself this time, as I’m stuck at the wrong end of the country, but you’ll find my poems lurking somewhere under the fantastic cover of this new issue, which is entitled ‘Horizons’.

It looks like there’s going to be some great writing in this edition. I’m massively excited to be being published in the same book as one of my favourite poets, the awesome Luke Wright, and then there’s Jake O’Leary, who’s been kind enough to offer me cups of tea and inspiration when he’s found me sitting in his kitchen, and many other great writers of poetry and prose as well as the enigmatic illustrations, photography, and design.

You can pick up a copy for just £5, and if you live in Cornwall, here’s a list of stockists, or leave a comment / contact me if you’d like to order a copy sent to your home.

The Launch night features performance from: Mac Dunlop, Rebecca Hall, Adrian Rodda, Sylvie Vacher, Fi Read, Suzie Cunliffe, Heather Hosking, Aaron Kent, Lauren Sheerman, Alan Robinson and Jo Thomas.

The Parabola Project Issue III: Horizons

Perhaps it is true what they say about third time lucky!

The Parabola Project Issue 2I’ve just been informed that the beautifully designed Parabola Project will be publishing some of my poems in its next issue.

If you’re not familiar with the publication, here’s a few words from their website:

“The Parabola Project is the brainchild of Telltales, a reading night launched in October 2008 with the goal of showcasing, motivating and inspiring creative writers from Cornwall and beyond. […] Telltales represents talent from across the writing spectrum, programming and publishing everyone on an equal footing […] showcasing captivating words alongside stunning imagery to inspire readers and writers everywhere.”

For more information about the Parabola Project, or to buy copies of Issue II: Origins, or for lots of other exciting content such as interviews with writers featured so far in The Parabola, head on over to their website and when you do, be sure to hit their main page several times as each time it refreshes you get a new image from the book in the background and some of them are really rather nice.

The Parabola Project Issue III is due out at the end of Nov 2012, so I’ll be in touch with more info about the launch and such nearer the time.
