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.

You can follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and & Goodreads if you want.

Or you can contact me here. I’m available for readings, commissions or anything else.

I’ve been nominated for the 2021 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem for my poem After by Neon Magazine. I can’t quite believe it. Thanks so much to them.
