  2. I’ve just been introduced to your work via York University’s FutureLearn course ‘How to read a poem’. I found your thoughtful piece that they used really helpful, and I’m planning to enjoy reading more of your work.

    Your piece on ‘How to read a poem’ was liberating for me. It helped me jump a few hurdles I had shied from. I look forward to looking at poetry as you did. Tee feeling and meaning have been my main focus up till now. I am looking forward to the jump! I am grateful to Uni of York’s Future Learn course for making me aware of you and reading some of your work.
