On Friday I’m going down to the Old Smoke of London. Why is it always called the Old Smoke? Or even the Ol’ Smoke. I think a lot of the smoke will be new smoke. But anyway.
I am going to the city that is called London and I am going there to read my poem ‘These Things Happen’ in the London Review Bookshop. I have been invited to do this because it is the launch of Issue 62 of Magma Poetry magazine and my poem is being published.
This is very exciting. I like Magma poetry and am really pleased to be published. When I got the email that said this was the case I actually wooped. I don’t often woop, and certainly not when sat alone in my bedroom.
Here is a picture of the bookshop in question –
My aunty will be coming to watch me read my poem, which I’m glad about.
If you’d like to come too, then you can, by getting a ticket on EventBrite here – http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/magma-62-launch-at-the-london-review-bookshop-on-the-theme-of-violence-tickets-17632326764
If you’re in London or would like to be in London and come along, I’d like that very much.
