On Monday gorse launched the first of their gorse editions, a poetry collection, Subcritical Tests, by Ailbhe Darcy and Stephen J Fowler, in the basement of The Sun and Thirteen Cantons, in Soho, London.
As a precursor to the launch there was a short showcase of gorse with readings from three writers who have been published in the journal, myself, Niven Govinden and Susana Medina.
It was a really enjoyable evening, and it was great to see so many people come out for a literary event on a Monday night, especially an event organised by a journal who had never held an event in London before.
I’m always delighted to be a small part of anything gorse does, and especially at the launch of their first book, and a very beautiful book it is too.
My reading was recorded, and can be watched here.
I hope you like it.
