New poem in the No News anthology

On 18 April, 1930, at 8.45pm, the BBC announced: ‘There is no news.’ Piano music played for the rest of the 15-minute bulletin.

So the story goes.

Happy to have a new poem, ‘Liebestod’, in Recent Work Press’ No News: 90 Poets Reflect On A Unique BBC Broadcast (eds Paul Munden, Alvin Pang, Shane Strange) alongside writing by Cassandra Atherton, Rachel Blau Duplessis, Lisa Brockwell, Tricia Dearborn, Tishani Doshi, Ranjit Hoskote, Joshua Ip, Helen Ivory, Andy Jackson, Jill Jones, Tammy Lai-Ming Ho, Helen Mort, Nathanael O’Reilly, Jessica Wilkinson and Yeow Kai Chai and plenty more.

You can watch my recording of ‘Liebestod’ here and buy a copy of No News here.
