Stoke Newington Literary Festival

I read from my upcoming collection Place Waste Dissent at Squatting London, an event organised by my publisher Influx Press at Stoke Newington Literary Festival last Saturday. Partner-in-crime and Influx Press writer George F. read from his excellent Total Shambles memoir as well.  We’re becoming a bit of a double-act. Then Gary Budden chaired a Q & A session. It was a great event. Sarer took some pics . Thanks to all who were there, especially Sarer Scotthorne & Kit Caless/Gary Budden @influxpress.
