Festival Poetry Shambles

Book Shambles EXTRA

Another Book Shambles EXTRA, free and uncut for all listeners. Recorded back at the Latitude Festival, Robin caught up with four fantastic poets to talk about their work and influences. Hollie McNish, Murray Lachlan Young, Luke Wright and John Osborne. Obviously, being recorded at a festival there is a bit of background noise and music at times but that just adds to the atmosphere.

Back next week with a standard episode, with Robin and Josie, and an extended edition for patrons of which you can become one at patreon.com/bookshambles
