Last Thursday 7 April, the Poetry Cafe in London held the Poets at 3 event. The afternoon line-up was full with 30 poets reading. There was a loose theme of ‘Rain’ to match the spring weather in London, but I chose to read my poem ‘Warfare’ from my recently published collection, A Model Archaeologist. You can watch a video of my reading above.

With a relaxing two week break from my day job as an English support teacher, I took the opportunity to read. Here’s my photo album of all the poets reading on the afternoon.
