“Fire sermons and authentic retrievals for a battleground on the edge of the liminal, delivered with spirit and spite and sting. True witness.”

I’m a Bristol based poet/collaborator/artist. I’m fortunate that I’ve had some books published by erbacce-press, KF&S Press and Influx Press. Portugese text artist/poet bruno neiva and I have an ongoing experimental collaboration under the guise of Servant Drone. Knives Forks & Spoons Press published a book of our work called Servant Drone in 2015. More of my work has been published in Dead King Mag, International Times, M58, Foxhole Volume 1, Red Pepper, The Morning Star, Queen Mob’s Teahouse, Unofficial Britain, Fit To Work: Poets & Artists Against ATOS, amongst other sites, ‘zines, journals and magazines.
Prints of collage & experimental poetry from Place Waste Dissent (Influx Press) have been exhibited in Bournemouth, Bristol, Coventry & Sheffield (Oct 5-8 2016).
I’ve performed at Womad, The Royal Opera House, The Shelley Theatre, The Bristol Poetry Festival, The Horse Hospital, Sanctum, Stoke Newington Literary Festival, Gato Vadio in Porto & many other venues.
Contact me if you’d like to suggest a collaboration, ask me to run a poetry workshop, read poetry at your launch/gig/festival/party/experimental car-park opening etc, write you a poem, be your poet-in-residence, give me money, buy my books or ask any questions . . .
