Festival Director Michelle Hodgson said: "We were delighted to have the opportunity to host the first ever Polari in the north and we're thrilled that Paul Burston will be returning with a new set of authors for HLF2015. Polari Up North was one of the highlights of this year's festival and we are looking forward to another highly entertaining evening of performances next March."

I am very proud to have a second poem in this amazing magazine (described by Carol Ann Duffy as 'simply the best'). And yes – you can buy a copy via their website.
