Steve Griffiths’ readings are rare but well received – see his single image videos: more will be out soon. He launched his third pamphlet in four years, ‘The Gaze Met’ with Clutag Press, at the Wheatsheaf, haunt of Dylan Thomas and George Orwell, in Fitzroy, round the corner from the BBC, in June 2024, alongside Robert Minhinnick and Laura Wainwright, also launching their pamphlets – a convivial gathering of old and new friends. A year earlier, Rack Press launched his pamphlet ‘A Twist in the Stairs’ in that magical venue The Music Room, Great Ormond Street, opposite the hospital. Online, with Shrewsbury Poetry, he and Philip Gross explored the theme of ‘home’ in the depths of winter, Steve surrounded by packing cases after his recent move back to London.
