NaPoWriMo Day 24: Once Upon A Time

A short and silly one for NaPoWriMo today. Have you heard my piece for BBC Radio Kent yet? I got asked onto Dominic King‘s drivetime show as part of the celebrations for Shakespeare’s birthday, and was challenged to come up with a piece. Have a listen here – 1 hour 33 mins in!

I’m performing at Express Excess tomorrow at the Enterprise in Camden! I’m really looking forward to it – I’ve heard only good things about Paul Lyalls‘ night, and the line-up is great. On the bill with me is Rosie WilbyIndigo WilliamsSteven Parry and Julian Fox. Come down to Chalk Farm for 8.30pm if you fancy a night of quality spoken word with a comedic twist!

NaPoWriMo Day 23: Birthday Prologue (for BBC Radio Kent)

Something special for today’s NaPoWriMo! A couple of weeks ago I went on BBC Radio Kent to talk about my most recent crowdsourced poem #celebratedpoem and had a great time talking to Dominic King on his drivetime show. Dominic gave me a call today and asked if I could put something together for Shakespeare’s Birthday to go on air today and I was excited to accept his challenge!

This is what I put together! You can listen my reading on iPlayer (1 hour 32 minutes in!) or here on Soundcloud as a stand-alone.
