I can be heard on the latest episode of the Nocturne Podcast talking about Poetry and the Night.

Hear it here

“Nocturne: Quiet Transmission

Poetry and the night are some of the last remaining domains of “unknowing”; places where it’s acceptable to digest the world slowly and without conclusion, and where one can linger in, and traverse, experiences like solitude, impermanence, and wonder. Poets Cecily Parks and Tom Harding are both drawn to explore the intersection between the quiet tender moments of night and the act of writing and reading poetry. It’s a space where one can capture fleeting wisps from the darkness, and then send them off for others to hold like fireflies in a jar. Poems from the night are like fragments of dreams forgotten upon waking, reminders of things lost to us in the day.”

Night Work - Now available

Night Work Selected Poems 2006 – 2016

The sympathetic people at Palewell Press have published a collection of my poetry and drawings written between 2006 & 2016.

The poems are night themed, either written at night or about the night.

Night Work is available now from AMAZON or directly from the publisher HERE.

"This is a gentle book that sings a rather melancholy tune, in a strangely uplifting way. As an added bonus the collection is illustrated by the poet himself, with simple ink drawings, some of which are particularly lovely...
... this is an enchanting book, which readers may well reread many times, perhaps in bed or in the kitchen, on some sleepless night."
