Phoenix rising from the canal, Oxfordshire
Since the beginning of the year I've been working on several Canal Laureate projects with The Poetry Society and the Canal & River Trust, and contributing a monthly blog to Waterlines.
One of the latest projects to reach completion is a new filmpoem, The Cut, created in collaboration with the Canadian artist Pierre Tremblay. The Cut was screened daily as part of Barge Fiodra's residency on the Regent's Canal at King's Cross, London, during April (in a double bill with vintage short film The Barge Fellows). The filmpoem can now be viewed here.
I'm looking forward to working with the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and the Macclesfield Canal over the summer, and presenting new poems at watery events in York and Bedford -- keep an eye on the Canal Laureate Twitter feed or website for updates.
