As I have previously written, in April I will be running the Brighton Marathon and reading a poem to the crowd at every mile marker.
I was talking with someone today about the origins of the idea of running 26 poems and I realised that it is part of a continuum. This is the latest in a line of creative ventures where I have taken my work out into the world and placed it within the day-to-day experience of my ‘audience’.
So I’m making a note-to-self. In all aspects of my life, don’t sit around waiting for my audience/collaborators/clients etc to find me, go out and find them. Place myself into their world, do my thing and remind them of the how joyous it can all be.
Feel free to do this too
