Happy New Year! I’m delighted to say it’s looking to be the busiest publishing year I’ve ever enjoyed, due several books being scheduled for 2014. There will be plenty on this blog about all of them in the coming months, so I’d like to mention several events which are happening soon. It would be great to see you there!

Pocket Horizon, our small poetry anthology of poems and artwork on the history of science and medicine, launched successfully in autumn 2013. We’re rolling out several events around the book this year, starting with an evening at Made in Greenwich art gallery.
 *
There will be readings from all of the poets, as well as a Q & A with our artist, Cassie Herschel-Shorland. It promises to be a full and lively evening, with a musical piece, based on PH, being debuted, and guest poets contributing their own science-inspired poems.

The event is Wed 29 Jan, 7:30pm start: Tickets £5.

My verse drama, Opera di Cera, a tale about anatomical wax models, is due to be published by Valley Press in the next few weeks!
*
It has been selected a Top Choice by Inpress Books: 
I’ll be reading from the Opera at Bart’s Pathology Museum in Feb.
Dr Anna Maerker, medical historian and advisor on the project, will be speaking about the history of the wax Venus.
The event is Thurs, 20 Feb, 18:30 – 21:00. Tickets £7.

I’m currently working with The Mustard Club to produce a project for radio based on Opera di Cera.
 *
On 14 Feb I will be one of several poets reading romantic and/or salacious poems at the Museum of London’s Valentine’s Extravaganza.
The whole evening is £10 and runs from 7 – 10pm. http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/london-wall/whats-on/adult-events/late-events/

I hope to see you at some events, and thank you for reading!
