I’m a poet, theatre maker and 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’ve written and starred in eight solo shows of my poetry. In 2015 I debuted my first play – What I Learned From Johnny Bevan at The Edinburgh Fringe. It won a Fringe First award for new writing, The Stage Award For Acting Excellence, and The Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Show.
2017 is all about my second collection of poems – The Toll – which is published by Penned in the Margins in February. The accompanying spoken word show tours all year.
