Usually I am a poetry reader. But in a residency I am your poetry writer. For a day, a week, a month, or a year, I watch and listen, and give you feed-back, in poetry, on what I see and hear.

It could be that you want poems which sum up aspects of a conference, or a retreat. You might want to capture and celebrate the atmosphere of a convention or a festival. In the event of a long-ish arrangement, I will keep your organisation close company, on pre-arranged days, visiting regularly, and observing closely and respectfully. These can be very rich associations. In exchange for my insider privileges you receive, over time, a collection of poems which reflect many aspects of your community and numerous views of itself.
