National Poetry Day 2016: BBC Local Poets
Yesterday was the second busiest day of the year for poets (the first is, of course, Valentine's Day). I played my own small part, by being a wee cog in the wonderful Local Poets project that the BBC organised for the day. 40 poets matched to their respect BBC local radio station gave voice to an object that represented the area.
You can hear my tribute to London's Underground map, and I was on BBC Radio London in the evening talking about it (from 2h 51m).
I also popped up on BBC Asian Network to read another poem (from 2h 46m).
And you can hear all the other local poems here.
