I am a poet, writer and spoken word theatre creator specialising in work for young audiences.
I'm currently working on my brand new poetry collection with Otter-Barry following The Dictionary of Dads ( published May 2017) and bringing my latest family spoken word theatre show - Young Herbert's Horrors - produced by Half Moon Theatre and supported by Arts Council England - to theatres and venues across the country. My new stand-up style interactive children’s poetry shows Are We Being Silly? and My Dad is a Donkey are also touring in 2019.
I’ve been working as a performance poet and creative writing workshop facilitator for over twenty years, bringing my unique mix of puckish poetics and heart-felt humour to thousands of schools, theatres and libraries, not to mention steam trains, street corners and a sitting room made entirely out of newspaper. If you like to invite me to your event, school, library or festival in 2019 to perform a show or deliver a high energy day of workshops and activities please do get in touch!
