This week, Tyler and fellow novelist and University of Gloucestershire colleague D.D. Johnston will be appearing on the opening night of the Cheltenham Poetry Festival. The pair will be bravely reading some of their fledgeling poetry efforts (both, oddly enough, have written sports poems) as well as discussing links between the genres, and exploring the theme of 'interviews' in their work. You can pick up tickets from Ticket Source. The event takes place on Thursday night at Smokey Joe's retro cafe and bar in Cheltenham; doors open at 6.30, and the event kicks off at 7. Hope to see you there!
