Just to let you know I'll be talking about my new arts magazine Horizon Review on "Start the Week" this Monday morning, 20th October - 9am, if you're ever up that early on a Monday! (My train into London is at 06.04, so I'll certainly be awake by then. Or if not, I'll be in serious trouble, ahem.)
For those who don't know, "Start the Week" is a high-profile arts programme on BBC Radio 4.
The other guests with me this Monday are Rupert Goold, theatre director - who's currently directing Pete Postlethwaite in King Lear, along with Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Audience at the Gielgud Theatre, Pinter at the Duke of York AND Oliver! at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane - also Duncan Wu, writer and biographer (his most recent work is a biography of William Hazlitt) and Jackie Wullschlager, chief art critic for the Financial Times, who's just written a comprehensive tome on the Russian emigré artist Chagall.
If you miss it on Monday, the programme should be available for about a week using the Listen Again facility on the BBC Radio 4 website.
I'll be visiting the Poetry Library at the South Bank afterwards, having lunch with poet, critic and Warwick-based creative writing tutor George Ttoouli at the Poetry Society, and generally swanning about London in search of lattés and good poetry.
Ah, the life of a literary editor ... !

In case you haven't already spotted this story elsewhere, following on from his excellent work in the first issue of Horizon Review, poet David Morley has been on go-slow in recent months ... yet working harder than ever!
Discover a newly released film and still photographs of over 80 'natural' or 'slow' poems embedded along trails at the beautiful Strid Woods in North Yorkshire, including poems featured in the first Horizon, by visiting the news area of the University of Warwick website.
I really wish I could put up the links for those, but for some reason the link button isn't working and my HTML isn't being accepted. Mmm. It's been one of those days.
But in another day or two, I'll try to remember to post up something about myself instead.
Gosh, I bet you can hardly wait!
