Place Through Poetic Eyes

1st Oct 2014

Tom Pow, who will be conversing with fellow poet Ron Butlin, at BOOKMARK's Poetry and Place event on 11 October, is currently in Lagos on an exchange visit with Nigerian poet Tolu Ogunlesi whom he had previously hosted in Scotland in May. Tom has been blogging about those visits for Commonwealth Poets United website where you can read all about their many and varied experiences in each other's countries.

“I didn‘t wait to be invited back, I invited myself, in fact that‘s why I wrote another book”

BOOKMARK is better than most because it is superbly well organised, you look after me so well and because you, as a community, are so interested in books. I feel you actually want to hear what I have to say It‘s a marvellous event.  I will be back again if I can think of another book to write.
