How do you write? YOU JUST WRITE.
I’ve never been any good at self-promotion. It is particularly difficult when, as a born introvert the immediate desire is to just run away and hope people can work it out for themselves. In the modern world, however, this is not an acceptable means of communication. Therefore, it is time to stand up and do this whole business properly.
Welcome to the part of the Internet I can now legitimately call my own.

All 24 poems are now live on the Places of Poetry interactive map.
The back end is done, and there’s now a link to the main poetry site in the menu above. If you can’t be bothered to scroll up? All you have to do is click here.
This is my way of giving back to the town I’ve lived in for most of my adult life, and to put it (quite literally) on the map with a sizeable, significant poetic presence. You can follow my daily blog here, or look at my Twitter feed for updates as the project comes to a conclusion. Needless to say I’m immensely excited to have almost completed this journey: it represents something both personal and integral to my life here.
I failed to make the leap from Longlist to Shortlist on a non-fiction short piece written for Mind. It’ll get a cleanup, and then I’ll post it here later in July.
I can add the words ‘published poet’ to my CV: a poem entered for the Poetry Society Winter 2018 Competition was picked by poet Rachel Boast as a winner!
I was asked to create a poem under the title ‘The Abstract Space’, based on work from W.S. Graham. Choosing to be inspired by his 1967 poem ‘The Beast in the Space’, I present The Beast in Cyberspace.
