Welcome ! Here is a podcast with poet Jonathan Edwards.
How would you write about – a seal, a hippopotamus, your grandfather?
Jonathan also treats us to poems about Houdini, the Covent Garden Theatre in 1775, his father and reveals how he approaches a subject.
In conversation with Nadia Kingsley, Jonathan Edwards reads and discusses some of his poems, and how he writes.
