On Tuesday 12 November I'll be in Belfast to read from this is no longer entertainment for The Lifeboat.

The Lifeboat is a poetry reading series and small press run by Stephen Connolly and Manuela Moser.

Established in 2013, The Lifeboat as a series has hosted a range of poets from Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, Nick Laird and Sinead Morrissey, to Sarah Howe and Kayo Chingonyi.

Expanding into publishing in 2016, The Lifeboat Press has published pamphlets by Padraig Regan, Caitlin Newby, Susannah Dickey and Paul Muldoon among others.

Reading with me on 12 November will be US-born and Galway-based poet Shannon Kelly. The event takes place in The Sunflower Pub: doors 8.30pm, free entry.
