I’m performing at London Literature Lounge @ the Poetry Cafe on Thursday 18th July. It’s a special evening for me, as it’s not only presented by Anjan Saha who hosted my book launch, but I’ll be reading alongside Sundra Lawrence, the poet who, many years ago, gave me my first taste of working in the ‘poetry world’.

Sundra’s poetry has been described as “warm, visceral and witty”. She is published in numerous anthologies and journals including the Los Angeles Review. Starchild was her first chapbook. She has performed her work widely, including Soho Theatre, the Bristol Poetry Festival, BookSlam, De Paul University, Chicago, Jazz Café, Prague and also on television and radio. She has two young children and lives in North London.
Phil Lawder juggles and occasionally drops two careers, writing, performance poetry, a family and a cat. He is currently working on creating the 36 hour day. He has no ambition to write the great British novel but is part way through writing several average to fairly good ones. His work is a wry and often insulting commentary on what he sees around him, the stumbling relationships and hollow hopes of London and beyond.
… & me.
