I am reading with Angela Topping and JT Welsch, also in the Salt Modern voices series, in Northwich on Wednesday, at BLAZE, organised by Angela. I’m very much looking forward to it. I’ll be there all evening, including attending Angela’s workshop, trains willing. As its near Valentines day she’s suggested a “love” theme. I’ll have to see what I Can do!
