Curveballs 29th November 2023 (with Simon Drake)


Tonight I was joined in the studio by our first ever guest poet, Simon Drake. Simon has been a regular on open mic poetry nights in London over the past year, and has just released his first collection, ‘Triggers’, out now on Amazon. We heard 3 poems from the book and even got some ideas of what to expect from his next collection! Simon has a few more dates before the end of the year – you can find updates and poetry on his Instagram page.
