Welcome to my new website -  I hope you enjoy what you read and hear. Thank you.

I contributed to a beautifully made documentary presented by Owen Sheers about David Jones's great World War I poem In Parenthesis, which you can still catch on BBC4 iPlayer till 7 August.

In August 2016 Mariscat will publish The Leonids, a pamphlet of poems mostly about that force of nature, my mother, Ann Dixon, who died last year. The launch will be on Friday 12 August at Blackwells, 53-59 South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1YS.
6 for 6:30 p.m. till 8 p..m. Refreshments and short reading. Free, but do register on Eventbrite here.

I will be reading with my wonderful Edinburgh co-host Rob A. Mackenzie and a selection of fine poets including Eliza Kentridge and Tessa Berring at our annual Fruitmarket Gallery Poets Night on Wednesday 17 August, 8.pm.
The night will include new work by the poets, as well as a fresh art-themed poem from each poet, linked to the the gallery's current exhibition by Mexican sculptor, Damián Ortega.  Come early to see the exhibition before the poetry!
