During the pandemic, Wythenshawe Good Neighbours produced a 'My Resilience Matters' pack with older people in the area. Snippets from my 'pandemic a-z' and 'we're all new to this' appear in it. Here I am at Wythenshawe AFC for the launch, where I shared some of my poems.

Poetry Soul Train was a 24hr Twitterfest starting at 8pm on New Year's Eve 2021.The idea was to send words around the world celebrating being human. Supported by the Camerados, I came up with the idea as part of the 'Xmas Can Be Crap' activities. Find out more here.
