Propagated by poetry, watered with words and fertilised with fun!

Greetings Greenies!

Proud to announce that Green Poems for a Blue Planet book and performances was Winner at the 2014 Cimate Week Awards in the category Best Artistic Response to Climate Change!

Hot on the heels of that I’ve been touring with international charity WaterAid giving poetry performances and workshops about safe clean water and satitation! Yes – more Pooetry! The events took place at Southern Water, Thames Water, Welsh Water and Yorkshire Water as well as at Canary Wharf for World Water Day. There have also been schools perfomances in London and Bristol and well as the book launch performances of the new book Verse for the Earth – More Green Poems for a Blue Planet – again in London at the Panter and Hall Gallery on Pall Mall and at the At Bristol Science Centre in Bristol. There will also be limited edition prints of the poems with the illustrations going on sale and, if you’re interested, drop me a line at contact@greenpoemsforablueplanet.com

Great news about the Green Poems for a Blue Planet and WaterAid Poetry Competition Poems on Water which has had over two thousand entries! Some entries even came from as far afield as Indonesia and Dubai. Now it’s time to sit down and read the verse and watch the filmpoems to find the winners.

Next up will be a performance at the International Corporate and Social Responsibility Excellence Awards at one of the most iconic eco-buiildings in the UK – the Crystal in London. I’ll also be up in Lincolnshire in the Autumn performing for Lincolnshire County Council for the launch of their CaNeBuZo – Carbon Neutral Business Zone, located in Long Sutton. This is a unique earth-sheltered development of seven self-contained office units that are naturally heated, naturally ventilated and which will have low to no energy bills.

So that’s all for now greenies, non-greenies and inbetweenies. Be seen to be green!
