poetry tours

I have produced poetry readings, poetry tours, multimedia exhibits and small literature festivals.

In 2012 and 2013 I produced, marketed and managed two tours for Arc Publications.

In 2012 the tour comprised seven international poets (from Iceland, Turkey, Burma, Punjab, Armenia and Brazil) visiting 29 venues for readings, discussions and workshops on translation.

In 2013 the tour took 12 poets (four from the UK, others from Sri Lanka, Serbia, Germany, New Zealand, Armenia and Catalonia) and two translators around 34 venues giving readings, workshops and discussions.

Before working with international poets I orchestrated smaller tours for North West writers featured in the Flax publications.022 launch

And before that I worked for Calderdale Libraries as their poet in residence where I orchestrated, alongside the Reader in Residence two mini festivals.

Before that I skated the freelance world and made events to suit whatever project I was involved in
