Poetry Performance
18/9/2020: Showcased by City Lit Writing Department – Poetry Performance series

At Willesden Library Centre
 This is me announcing the results of the 2012 Willesden Herald short story competition. Near the end, Charles Lambert says a few words too. And the remarkable Virginia Gilbert, right at the end. Roddy Doyle was the judge that year. Introduced by Sam Taradash.

With Katy Darby & Olga Zilberbourg
Katy Darby comments on the stories in the short list before announcing the winner in the Willesden Herald international short story competition 2016. I then make a brief appearance to hand the prize to Olga Zilberbourg, who makes a charming acceptance speech.

With Maggie Gee
Maggie Gee comments on the short-listed stories and announces the results of the Willesden Herald short story competition 2011.

With Mary O’Shea
This is Mary O’Shea accepting first prize in the Willesden Herald short story competition 2011. I put in an appearance, just about – if you don’t blink.

With Rana Dasgupta
My first attempt at using a video camera, with somewhat comical effects. I know, I’ll say it was an artistic decision to film renowned writer Rana Dasgupta in silhouette, opening the results event.

With Lin Sagovsky
Lin Sagovsky brings the characters in my story to vivid life in the Liars’ League “Justice & Mercy” event at The Phoenix, Cavendish Square in London’s West End (8 March 2016).

With Mustard Bastard
  This is Mustard Bastard’s setting of my poem “Ballad”. It’s a hoot. I love it.
