Poetry Arena, Saturday

Who are you most looking forward to seeing?

I'm really looking forward to seeing people like Jon Ronson and Adam Buxton. I hope I see Regina Spektor too, she was great at the first Latitude. The poetry tent is where I spend most of my time.

I like how compact it is. Especially if you've been to Glastonbury, it's really nice everything is so manageable; if you want to see a band and then a comedian and then a poet it's just a few minutes from stage to stage.

Do you have anything special planned?

I'm performing in the poetry tent every day, and also I'll be part of Aisle 16 and Friends at 1 am every night, which is always a packed tent and really special atmosphere.

If you weren't doing this what would you be doing?

Watching cricket on telly.
