About 

 

My second pamphlet with the Emma Press, Elastic Glue​, was published in February 2019. This follows Goose Fair Night which was published  in March 2016, reprinted in 2017. I've been published in magazines including Magma, Mslexia, Brittle Star, The North,PoemUnder the Radar, Morning Star, Fenland Reed and South Bank Poetry and in anthologies, including Second Place Rosette (ed. Richard O'Brien and Emma Wright); Vaster then Empires (ed. Joy Howard); One For the Road​ (ed. Helen Mort); Urban Myths and Legends (ed. Rachel Piercey and Emma Wright) and Best Friends Forever (ed. Amy Key). On-line, I'm on The Stare's Nest . And Other Poems and ​Proletarian Poet. 


You can read interviews with me on Pam Johnson's blog site Words Unlimited, in Nottingham's ace independent newspaper Left Lion and on the TCS Network site  (on being a late-starter poet).


I am currently a member of poetry workshop groups led by Mimi Khalvati and Richard Price.  


​​I was born and raised in Nottingham but have spent my adult life in London, the last 35 or so years in the Seven Dials corner of Covent Garden, home of the broadsheet and the ballad. I've been a social worker and community activist, worked on a political and financial risk journal, in arts television and artist development. I currently earn my living as the administrator of a charitable trust which undertakes community-led public realm projects. I have grandchildren. I make a lot of jam.
