were successfully launched last Tuesday as part of the Blue Bus series at The Lamb, Lamb's Conduit Street, London. Well, not so new, really: both

Thanks to both poets, and to David Miller and Keith Jebb, who curate the reading series.

I had an enjoyable day at Free Verse, the Poetry Book Fair, in London last Saturday (8 September).
