I’m very excited to announce that I will be teaching a two-day course on field walling and gapping for Black Mountains College in Wales, August 27th & 28th, 2019. The course is limited to six participants, and the real treat is that one evening I’m paired up with writer Owen Sheers for some literary discussion!

Elementum Gallery, South Street, Sherborne, Dorset, DT9 3LU
This is a special spot for me, as I wrote for Elementum, Ed. 4, not long after the publication of Between Stone and Sky. Catherine Hyde’s original art from my piece on the Elan Valley is currently hanging in the gallery space, and Jay Armstrong, the journal’s publisher and editor, has been a wonderful ally as I have begun to make my way through the world as a writer.
Drinks from 6:30, with reading and discussion beginning at 7:00. Tickets are £9.99 and include a signed copy of Between Stone and Sky (or £6 and redeemable against a copy of the book, if you so choose).

An evening with Cogito Books, Hexham, Northumberland
Excited to make my first visit to Northumberland! We’ll be chatting in the bookshop itself. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (01434) 602555 for more information.
I will announce additional UK and international dates as I have them. For now, I am available by request, eager to talk to bookshops, book clubs, school groups, and the like. Some of this we can do by Skype, don’t you think? Don’t let geography be a limiting factor. Y’all, I just like to talk and meet folks, and if you’re interested in the book, too, that’s great.
Includes a glass of wine (or alternative) on arrival and a chance to purchase the book at a discounted price.
