Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre made my poem 'Woods' from The Wilding Eye , their poem of the week. I'm very grateful.

The poem should be in quatrains and has wound up in an intriguing kind of tercet. I've asked them to fix that when they notice, though am tempted to leave it almost as it is........8---)

The New Statesman has made  my new book, The Wilding Eye, New and Selected Poems, its recommend read for issue 12-18 June, 2015, with a great short review. Delighted.

The review can be found on my review page for this new book.

Pleased to have a new poem accepted by The Rotary Dial, a fine on-line Canadian Journal coming out of Toronto, (one of my several old 'home towns'). Only my second poem published in Canada (I had one in Quarry years ago) and second on-line (the first being Huff Post).

Also this Journal prides itself on taking formal work and has stepped outside its comfort zone to publish me --I'm very grateful.
