I was delighted to be asked to take on this honorary role for the City that I love. I can’t wait to get started writing poems. I’ve put out a call on social media for suggestions for subjects that I should tackle during the two year laureateship, and I’m looking forward to seeing what people suggest.
I’m also hoping to do some collaborations with people. I shall post the work that is created, or links to it on my blog and across social media. So if you’ve got any suggestions about what or who in Wolverhampton is worth a poem then do let me know. Or indeed if you’re an artist, filmmaker or musician who might be interested in some kind of collaboration then get in touch.
