Here is a video clip from the open mic at Preston’s Market Street Social bar in Preston, when Laura Taylor performed some new poetry, on August 17th 2021. Thanks to Garry Cook, who organised and filmed the event; and who very generously shared this footage of me reading my poem Necromancy.
Here is a new recording of a poem that first appeared in OWP Issue 57. It is called ‘Crows’ and in my collection ‘Wish’ (Maytree Press 2019). It will also be published in the forthcoming Places Of Poetry anthology. Hope you enjoy it, all feedback welcome!

My performance of the poems, ‘Snow Globe’ and ‘Crows’ at Damson Poets’ open mic, in February 2020. Thanks to Christine Burke and Damson Poets, as well as to the kind poets who gave up a few minutes of their allocated time, to let me read. The sound is not great, but I am grateful to my friend for recording my performance with their smart phone and cleaning it up so I can be heard.
