Felix Dennis, poet

October 4, 2010

A publishing genius – behind my one time fav mag Maxim – is also a poet and he is on tour now!

Felix Dennis built up a publishing empire and his stable of mags now includes Viz, Maxim and Computer Shopper.

His month-long poetry reading tour (called: “Did I mention the Free Wine?“) runs until Oct 21 at various locations across the UK (tonight he plays The Birdcage in Leeds).

Tickets for all the nights are £10 in advance, £12 on the door / £5 concessions.

The tour is promoting his latest poetry book: Tales From the Woods.

Felix runs a charity which plants trees in England, called Forest of Dennis and the website says he usually donates a sum equal to the tour proceeds to the charity.

So good poetry and a good cause.
