Claire Booker in full swing at the Magma 53 launch

It was standing room only at the Troubadour last week for the launch of the latest issue of Magma.  More than a hundred people gathered to hear contributors reading out their work.

My poem ‘Quake – South Island’ has been uploaded onto the Magma website and is available to read for free. But I highly recommend buying a copy of Magma (Issue 53) as it’s packed with some wonderful poetry and essays around the topic of music.  Check it all out at

Here I am on stage at the Troubadour reading ‘Quake-South Island’.
