Hello its been a while since I dropped you a line here! Hello Unbounders!

I wonder how you all are and if you have heard of Others: Writers on difference 
Currently crowdfunding on Unbound, all proceeds go to refugee and anti-hate charities!!

I'm thrilled to be invited to join some other others to write for this new anthology. This book will be a collection of essays, stories and poetry discussing the theme of being Others and I will be joining other others in a spectacular line up that includes: Leila Aboulela, Gillian Allnutt, Damian Barr, Noam Chomsky, Rishi Dastidar, Peter Ho Davies, Louise Doughty, Salena Godden, Colin Grant, Sam Guglani, Matt Haig, Aamer Hussein, Anjali Joseph, AL Kennedy, Joanne Limburg, Tiffany Murray, Sara Nović, Edward Platt, Alex Preston, Tom Shakespeare, Kamila Shamsie, Will Storr and many other others. Our editior is Unbound author and psychologist Charles Fernyhough.

If you were a fan of 'The Good Immigrant' you might like this book too. I'm excited to continue the conversation, help us, lets keep making lots of lots of noise ... #Wetickother

In other news I've been burning the candle at both ends, working and touring like a hooligan this past few months. I just got back from performing with Byline Festival and Frontline Club in NYC. I now have a handful of glorious gigs and festivals left to do in 2017 before I hibernate to work on my new projects ... 

Coming up next I'm at Chester Lit Fest (Nov 19) Blah Blah Blah, Wardrobe Theatre, Bristol (Nov 20) Bang Said The Gun at Soho Theatre (Dec 1) I'll be raising the roof and fund raising with John Cleese at the Stratford Theatre (Dec 3) and then I finish this year on a high with Robin Ince and friends at Conway Hall (Dec 16) All very exciting stuff, I hope to see you there! You'll find all my latest poetry and gig info at the usual place, Waiting For Godden: www.salenagodden.co.uk 

Sending many thanks and best wishes to all Unbound comrades!
