The Divinity of Monkeys

Oz’s poem, ‘In Praise of Monkeys,’ features in Radio 4’s Something Understood for Sunday 1st March, in which Sir Mark Tully discusses the divinity (& otherwise) of monkeys in different belief systems. It can be listened to throughout March here.

The Inspirational Fox

Inspired by the poem ‘A Train and a Fox’ artist Nigel Follett’s painting, This is not Adlestrop, can be seen (and prints ordered from) here. Nigel’s work has been internationally acclaimed, and this tip of the hat is an honour indeed.


August was productive, with poems published in The Cafe Review, HQ and Reach Poetry, along with the new anthology, Limerick Nation (IRON).
