This week on The Writing Life podcast – time for a burst of optimism and inspiration, courtesy of poet, producer, tutor and Director of TOAST, Lewis Buxton. If lockdown is getting to you, have a listen to this week’s pod and hopefully you’ll feel a little brighter about the future.
Lewis talks about TOAST, his regular live literature events, his own route into poetry and how coronavirus has affected his work. Then he treats us to readings of a couple of his own poems plus material from selected TOAST headliners.
Hosted by Steph McKenna and Simon Jones.
You can find out more about TOAST on their website.
