Issue 6 of Nature's Gold Magazine came out last weekend on the theme of "home", and it features two of my new poems, and several of my art pieces and illustrations! It was so much fun working on this issue, and it is available to read for free here.
I was also invited to speak on Amalia James' writing podcast In2Deep, alongside 5 other talented writers, sharing my main tip for publishing your first book. You can listen to the In2Deep podcast on Spotify, Google Podcast, RadioPublic, and Pocket Casts - I'm featured on Season 2 Episode 5 "How to Publish your First Book: 7 Tips by 7 Authors", at 16.33.
As part of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF)'s virtual events celebrating Wildlife Artist of the Year (WAY), they are running an Artist Panel, and I am really excited to announce that I am part of it! The Artist Panel will be hosted by DSWF WAY Human Impact category judge and Wildlife Artist of the Year Martin Aveling and DSWF Chief Executive Georgina Lamb, on June 1st, 5-6.30pm. I will be talking alongside award-winning artists Sofiya Shukhova, Sophie Green, Tom Shepherd, and Tichaona Ncube - it's free to attend, although donations are welcome, as they support the DSWF's valuable wildlife conservation work. You can book your tickets to attend the Artist Panel here, and you can read Martin Aveling's blog post about the panel here.

The DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year virtual awards ceremony is tonight at 7pm, and if you would like to attend, you can book free tickets through Eventbrite - donations to support DSWF's wildlife conservation work are welcome.
