Loved returning to Hay Festival yesterday (after too long away) to see some of my poems included in the Hereford College of Arts AR Sculpture Experience. To experience the poems, you scanned a QR code next to the real-world sculpture and were taken to an Instagram filter where you could read them in augmented reality. Such an innovative way for people to experience poetry!
Really pleased to have a haiku in the latest issue of Frogpond Journal, which has just arrived at my door all the way from Seattle, USA. A lovely surprise too, in a magazine of 158 pages, to find myself sharing one with Paul Chambers, the only other Welsh writer in the issue.
There's a free sampler of some of the poems, essays and reviews from the issue on the Haiku Society of America's website, where you can also order a copy of the full issue.
