A Video Celebrating My Scribbles from Caterpillar Poetry

Huge thanks to the lovely Caterpillar Poetry peeps for this lovely video celebrating my writing.

I'm not sure why they decided such a celebration was in order but I shall not complain.

You can find the video over at their Youtube page here:

"The Long Way Home: A Celebration of the Poetry of Steve Nash"

The P-Factor (or Hanging with Hegley)

More Ryedale Book Festival fun!

This from the organisers:

 "John Hegley is coming to the Festival this year for a fabulous, fun day of poetry. He will run a poetry workshop in the morning and will be joined by three other poets: Andy Seed (Winner of the Blue Peter Award for Best Book with Facts), Anneliese Emmans-Dean and Steve Nash.

In the afternoon, we’ll hold the P Factor Grand Final with the four poets, acting as judges. The winning team receive a trophy and will also have a chance to perform their poem during the Festival on Saturday 10th October as part of Andy Seed’s show.  The P Factor is an inter-school ‘X-Factor’ style competition. Pupils from Years 3 and/or 4 from each school will pick a poem and perform it as part of the Grand Final P Factor in the afternoon. 
For the first time this year, we are also planning on setting a new Guinness World Record for the largest number of children to recite Baa Baa Black Sheep."

Ryedale Book Festival

October 10th at 9:45 (just after the mighty John Hegley) this be happening:

Steve Nash, Rose Drew, Alan Gillott & Laurence O'Reilly + Ian Douglas+ The Book Shop Band

In a unique poetry/theatre hybrid, four performers each showcase drastically different approaches to spoken word. Alan, Laurence, Rose and Steve are professional poets, with very separate agendas forced to collaborate on a show. Their debates will take us on a journey through romance, personal torment, politics and comedy.
Music will be provided by the Bookshop Band and you can also enjoy stories from Ian Douglas.

It's totally FREE! But here's the link anyhoo:
