This week’s Featured Poet: Josh Seigal
I first met this week’s Featured Poet at the London Poetry Festival, where I heard him read his distinctive mix of page and performance poetry — he’s since featured in Read This Magazine. He’s been published in a heap of places and I reckon he’s destined for great things. Here’s his bio, and one of his poems… more in a day or two!
Josh Seigal studies philosophy at University College London. He has had poetry published in several journals both in print and online, and regularly performs in and around London. He is currently working on a book of childrens’ poems to be illustrated by his grandfather, Michael Kitchener, and is obsessed with the music of Tom Waits.
I went to a posh school.
We didn’t deface books
by scribbling cocks all over them,
we defaced books by putting
them in parentheses,
with a negation sign in front.
