I honestly don’t know what to say, other than the fact that I’m completely blown away and utterly over the moon to have made a cartoon cameo in Beano magazine. I used to love reading Beano when I was a boy, as did my dad…so, to actually appear in the magazine as a poet is amazing.

Huge thanks to cartoonist Hugh Raine for inviting me to make the cameo alongside Theresa Lola and Ian McMillan. He’s done a brilliant job in capturing us at a cartoon poetry slam. You can buy the latest issue from your local newsagents for £2.75.
