To gift or to treasure…

Talented artist Nicola Chestnutt and I are working on bringing you ‘Forever Engaging’ - the stunning limning (miniature) which graces this site in some kind of memorable form. It will be accompanied by an audio-book telling the tale of Pearl and Morie and their friends…

Like to commission a poem or book a performance?

That would be a real honour!

It’s always a pleasure to grace an event and add sparkle, something personal and joy to an occasion. I have read my own and others’ poems at weddings, dinners, launch events and special birthday celebrations.

Be in touch to discuss as every commission is different - guide price £250 plus travel expenses for either commissioned verse or performance. Charity and non-profit rates considered.

What else is brewing?

I’m inspired by the Extinction Rebellion movement and for swift and easy access via social media platforms I’ve created the ‘XR Echo Chamber’ on SoundCloud. The poetic inhabitants here will also find a spot on the ‘Rebels’ Roost’ - a place specifically for ‘eco-verse’ in Wild Poplars (although I would argue most of my work comes under that category! And with a fair wind and a bit of technical help, for those of you who want to watch rather than than listen, I’m working on launching a YouTube Channel too.

So, the above and a few other things hidden up PEARL’s sleeve!
