A review of The Architecture of Chance on DURA & an article on my StAnza Residency on The List

I'm happy to note that reviews of my second book The Architecture of Chance keep appearing, more than two years after publication. The most recent, written by Stephanie Koetsier for Dundee University Review of the Arts (DURA), was part of a series of reviews of books by poets who participated in the 2017 edition of StAnza, Scotland's International Poetry Festival in St Andrews, at the beginning of March.

In the review, published just days before the festival, Koetsier calls the collection "unique" and finds that the work in it "challenges the preconceived structures" of poetry. It is "the epitome of the contemporary poet’s working breadth and depth," she writes.

My thanks to Stephanie Koetsier and DURA for their interest.

While in St Andrews I spoke to journalist Rebecca Monks for an article about my Digital Residency at StAnza 2017 that she was preparing for Scotland's arts and entertainment magazine thelist.co.uk, and which appeared shortly after the end of the festival. Thanks to Rebecca for her interest and questions.
