Poems are supplied. Bring your own champagne.

Good day to you, and humblest apologies for the radio silence from this blog. No excuses, just apologies. I will do better.

There are new and exciting things afoot at NLP, new and exciting things that I have not yet received clearance to tell you about. Rest assured that you guys will be the first to know when I do!

poejazziIn the meantime, members of our facebook group may have seen this already, but it’s such a great review, you shouldn’t have to be a member of our champagne-swilling, super-exclusive, über mysterious facebook group to take part*. Poejazzi is a London-based spoken word and music night, and a couple of weeks ago, they reviewed Alex Gwyther’s Nasty Little Intro #4 on their blog. And what a lovely review it is! (Plus, they call us a cool publishing universe. Oh Poejazzi. Flattery will get you everywhere.)

Until next time, poetry fans, I hope you’re all sprinting outside whenever the sun comes out to see as much of the summer as possible!


*In actual fact, it’s not super exclusive and it’s totally un-mysterious. Honestly. Come join us. Poems are supplied. Bring your own champagne.

Intros, gigs and the wettest drought ever

Well hello there, poetry fans, and a very happy (and rainy if you live…pretty much anywhere in the UK) Saturday to you!

This is just a quick ‘un to remind you that our two latest pamphlets, Nasty Little Intro #3 by Amy Blakemore and Nasty Little Intro #4 by Alex Gwyther are flying off the shelves. Awesome poetry from two of the UK poetry scene’s Next Big Things, and all for the bargain price of £2. Stocks are limited, so don’t miss out!

I also have a few gigs for you to pencil into your diary, from above mentioned NLP poet Alex Gwyther. He’s out and about around the UK this spring and summer, most notably at Streetfest on 6th May, Poejazzi on 10th June, The Secret Garden Party from 19th-22nd July, and Camp Bestival from 26th-29th July.

Not being a farmer or someone who monitors water levels in regional reservoirs, I can’t say I’m all that excited about this ‘drought’ we are having. In fact, it would almost appear that we are being cheated out of an entire season. At NLP, I know we have some friends in high places, but am unsure whether any of them actually have the power to do anything about the weather. I’m just putting it out there. It’s my birthday next week and I’d like to wear my flip flops. OK? Thanks.
