I'm taking part in a couple poetry readings this month. Both events will feature motley international crews. If you're a Lancashire or Yorkshire person, please come along and say hi.

Thursday March 21st: World Poetry Day: 7pm, Livesey House, Heatley Street, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, PR1 2XR.

Friday March 29th: Wretched Strangers: Poetry & Migration: 7pm, Waterstones, 15 Coney Street, York, YO1 9QL.

And speaking of poetry, I have two poems in the latest issue of Alaska Quarterly Review.

So starts Buttercup Festival Series 3! There are three new strips to kick things off, and a new strip will appear every Monday. I plan to keep this series going for a long, long time. Hard to believe it's been five years since Series 2 ended. Five years! What have I been doing? I had another kid. I did a PhD, and a book related to that will be out with Cambridge University Press in July. I wrote the words for an opera called The Conifers. I've added some detail to the About page if you're curious to know more.

There are beautiful new Buttercup Festival t-shirts for sale from the good folks at TopatoCo. If you buy a shirt, send me a picture of you wearing it, and maybe I'll put it just to the right there, instead of the boring product image I've got right now.

There are prints for sale as usual, and I've decided to start selling my original artwork. Hang a little piece of me on your wall.

Thanks for reading, everyone. It's good to be back.
