I spent a week last month at the Arnolfini, just me, artist Daphne Wright's artworks and a notebook. I wrote every morning before the gallery was open to the public and was lucky enough to meet the artist. I'm now editing frantically. You can read a short interview about my residency at the Arnolfini http://www.katrinanaomi.co.uk/katrina-interviewed-by-the-arnolfini. If you'd like to hear the new poems, I'm doing a reading at the Arnolfini in Bristol on 3 December. It's free -http://www.arnolfini.org.uk/whatson/katrina-naomi-writer-in-residence-event.
Fireworks & festivals
On 5 November, I'll be reading with the wonderful Penelope Shuttle and Caroline Carver at Morrab Library in Penzance. On 11 November, I'm performing at Cornwall Film Festival at Tremenheere Sculpture Garden, as the culmination of a collaboration with film-maker Anna Cady. For full info on both events, http://www.katrinanaomi.co.uk/1122-2.
