Welcome ! Here is a podcast with poet Keith Chandler.
How would you write about – a grayling butterfly, a goldsmith’s apprentice or a chemo nurse?
Keith treats us to poems about a fisherman, glassworkers, a tragic news item, and reveals how he approaches a subject.
In conversation with Nadia Kingsley.
