News! News! News!

Get that?  This is news!  Tonight, the incredibly exciting Infinite Differencean anthology of new experimental women's poetry, edited by Carrie Etter, and published by Shearsman, is launching in London at Swedenborg Hall, Swedenborg House, Bloomsbury Way, London WC1A 2TH. The gig starts at 7.30, and the line up includes Caroline Bergvall, Frances Presley, Carol Watts, Harriet Tarlo, Andrea Brady, and Wendy Mulford, along with many many other luminaries of avant writing.  What more could you want?  More details here.

On Sunday 14th, meanwhile, Nine Arches Press are hosting another Shindig! at Wilde's Bar in Leamington Spa.  Readers include Luke Kennard, Matt Merritt, and Myra Connell, whose From the Boat is being launched that evening.  It promises to be an exciting night: the Editors will be there with hidden microphones and a sackful of otters.  Be there or be a cube.  I think that's right...  More details here

Sorry to have missed the ol' Shindig in Leam. Hope there was a riot. Death at the microphone. And some poetry, of course.

I was stuck at home ironing my stockings and polishing my little pink toe nails in preparation for my visit to the famed Ivy Club, you know, to meet my new literary agent.

It's so hard being important.

By the wya, I've now posted up Jeffrey Side's comment (from Eyewear) on Raw Light in pride of place: 'If Jane Holland didn't exist it would be necessary for us to invent her.' Jeffrey's such a star. Effortlessly witty.

Just wanted to say, Simon, I love your new poem at Hand & Star. Super stuff. I was a bit jealous actually. Why didn't it send it to me at Horizon?

I still have you on film, you know. And I'm not afraid to use it ...

Jane, I'll make it up to you. I'm working on a long piece on Ted Hughes - of which the article above is a tentative fragment - which I'd be very happy to donate to Horizon. What do you reckon?
