LeftLion secretly planted a bomb inside that Icelandic volcano with the funny name so that all your flights would get cancelled. Why? Because this June sees Southwell Poetry Festival, Lowdham Book Festival, a fantasy all-dayer at Alt Fiction and ‘I’m an American Poet’ which is much more fun than getting a suntan and losing your virginity to a Spanish waiter. In addition to discussing this lot we chatted to NCN students about graphic illustrated poetry and a couple from the forum discussed all things Hood.
Aly Stoneman and Rowland Nelkin read Hood poetry and discuss festivals
Eireann Lorsung discusses the I’m an American Poet festival
Ticklin’ Stick by La musique du lait
Graphic poetry with James Johnson and NCN students

Remember word lovers, this podcast is whatever YOU make it.
A podcasting staple for fans of weird fiction, Welcome to Night Vale has made an international name for itself since its debut in 2012. With its fourth live tour All Hail underway, we popped in to have a chat with performer and sentient patch of haze Meg Bashwiner to get her thoughts on the show, the state of the world, and her first time in Nottingham.
