Give it a go


I've messed about with linking some slightly relevant photos to a recording made a few years ago of one of my readings. The idea is to use this as a plug to promote myself for other readings. Not sure if it works or not. What do you think? Would you pay me to read at your festival/poetry event?

Grand poem well read,EW.And nothing at all wrong with the pre-amble,but I can't help but wonder what if a man had said the same about a woman?Ps Would you be available for my wake? I'm planning a deadly do altogether ,the party to end all parties.Not sure of the exact date yet but I'm thinking Dec 2012, probably shortly before Christmas

Definitely a really nice poem, and nice audience reaction there at the end. Would like to know more about the photos - esp the one with the crowd of people in the horse box, so that distracted me a little from the poem. But very well read. You've got the job.

You have a great voice for reading and reciting. I can't see why you would have any trouble getting reading gigs. Far better, certainly, than my own stammering flat-as-a-pancake Cork accent.
Great poem, too. A lovely idea...
Well done!

You really have a lovely voice. i could listen to you read all day, which I realise is a little ironic in the context of what you were saying, but true nonetheless

Yes, lovely voice, lovely poem. I'd come and listen, for sure.
