Last Saturday I met with one of my avid readers, of whose blog I frequently visit, Ben Naga! He is an amazing person and a great poet. We had a lovely time strolling through Manchester, talking about everything from poetry (what else?) to politics and travel. If you have not visited his site and read his poetry I highly recommend it!
Besides Lynne Truss and Ben Naga I have met a range of interesting authors and poets this past month (Nadeem Aslam, GC Waldrep, Audrey Niffenegger, and Ali smith to name a few)! Let’s hope that one day I will be the one to hold a workshop with a group of MA creative writing students.
Speaking of the MA, I better get back to revising some poetry for Monday. I greatly overestimated the amount of free time I would have. I ordered a bunch of books about a month ago that I thought I would have read by now. I haven’t even started! Oh well… At least they look nice on my bed stand.
I hope to have another post rather soon, hopefully something about my birthday (which is tomorrow)! Take care, and don’t forget, I still update my twitter and facebook frequently. Don’t forget to check them!
