Warm reception for The Long Beds & what lies ahead

On 1st February 2021, Youtube admits you to launch night of Kate’s reading and interview with Simon Trewin, recorded on 26 September 2020, thanks to the unflagging work of the small team at Carcanet Press.

Poetry Review, the British quarterly, included a fantastic review of the book by Sarah-Jean Zubair in their Winter 2020 volume 110:4.

‘Haunting’, wrote one watcher of her film-poem “The Queen of Naples, asked about her Childhood Home“. New commissions for film-poems are in the pipeline, so too are opportunities to connect across site specific and cross-disciplinary networks with CollectIvel (linking music with English rivers) and in Dublin, Poetry at Skerries Mills (linking windmills and perhaps granaries, oast houses, and other tall structures in the landscape).

This year’s Waterloo Festival (on the theme of Respair) revisits the Festival of Britain (1951) a favourite subject of Kate’s. As a student at St Martin’s she cycled up and down the South Bank with her first mobile site specific sculpture that recalled the Skylon. So long ago that she doesn’t have a digital photo.
