Hello ...

My name is Luke Wright (as should be apparent). I’m a poet and sometime broadcaster. Every year I write a new poetry stage show and schlep it around arts centres, theatres, pubs and festivals. Not, as some claim, because I’m “committed to taking poetry to the people” but because it pays my mortgage. And I love it.

I’m currently showing off my eighth show -¬†Stay-at-Home Dandy. It’s touring March-June 2015. I’m on the road with John Cooper Clarke, check out the gigs page. I’m also working on my first theatre show – What I Learned From Johnny Bevan is being run in over the Spring to launch properly at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In the past my shows have sold out Edinburgh Fringe runs, toured to Australia, China and Europe and got five star reviews from the likes of The Scotsman and The List.

If you want more of these self-aggranising accolades have at look at the bio section. New poems and news get posted on the Blog. Or simply go nowhere and have listen to a thing I done:
