I'm a poet and short story writer based in Bristol, UK, whose work has been nominated for the Forward Prize and has appeared in Neon Magazine, Nine Muses Poetry and Marble Poetry. My first poetry chapbook, Our Voices in the Chaos, was published by Selcouth Station in October 2019. I self published a second tiny pamphlet in October 2020 called Refraction.
I have a number of other books available, including three that are free to download. Go here to browse and download. On this website, I maintain a blog about writing, art and politics as well as any other random topic. Often I scrawl over newspapers to create erasure poetry.
When not writing, I enjoy dancing badly at gigs, attempting to grow vegetables and taking photos. I understand a very, very small amount of what is going on in the world.
Or you can contact me here. I'm available for readings, commissions or anything else.

In rare personal news, I got engaged over the weekend to my partner of seven years, Mel. I’m ridiculously happy.

It starts with a whisper,
muttered half phrases
and small slanders shaking
leaves, pushing wind chimes
into gentle collisions.
