In 2007, Anne Born, who ran Oversteps Books, invited me to submit a collection, which she then published as Touching Earth. She later commissioned me to produce a book of winter and Christmas poems which was published as festo, after she died.
When Anne became ill, I visited her and asked if I could do anything to help. She had decided by this stage that she wanted me to become Managing Editor of Oversteps which, after initial hesitation because of my other commitments, I did in 2008. Since then I have been publishing between eight and ten new poetry collections each year.
Here’s an article about Oversteps in the Western Morning News and I have also done a piece on Exeter’s Bla Bla show.
