After a false start a month or so ago, when nothing happened, Dru's received an email from the Beeb to say that my poem, 'Kin', requested by her back in 2012, will DEFINITELY be on Poetry Please on Radio 4 this Sunday, from 4.30pm. That's this Sunday, 29th May. From 4.30pm. Absolutely definitely. Really.
However, I've since been informed that it will be on the same time as the commentary on some football match at Wembley involving a team called Barnsley. And apparently this is a problem ...
Oh well, I'm sure someone will rethink their priorities before it's too late.
If you hear it and like it, 'Kin' is from my 2011 collection, 'Communion', published by Indigo Dreams Press, and also appears in Dru's illustrated anthology of wildlife poems, 'Inking Bitterns', available from Gert Macky Books.
