This summer it was a great pleasure to receive the support of Cape Farewell to publish new material on the subjects of climate change and COVID. Below is what came out of the project, some of the best work I have made to date. I worked alongside three other poets in the South West – Liv Torq, Shagufta Iqbal and Chris White.

Want to skill up on machines like this (or others)? I have many years of professional experience performing with loop stations and can save you a lot of time on getting set up, as well as workshopping your ideas and songs. I can also teach songwriting and beatboxing as part of the sessions.
All sessions start with a free check-in session to get to the bottom of what you want to achieve so we can craft sessions accordingly. For more info contact

The 8th March was a historic moment for the history of spoken word poetry. Spoken Word Educators and Academic Researchers (SWEAR) is born! Writers, performers, educators, researchers, reviewers and poetry activists met at UniSlam, Birmingham to establish spoken word poetry in higher education.
SWEAR is founded on a motivation to support the scene and the work of poets in their communities.

Thoroughly enjoyed launching my book Stage Invasion in Bristol. After my talk we had performances and a panel debate. For that I thank Visuule Kanessa Chris Redmond and Lucy English . It was chaired brilliantly by the host Danny Pandolfi of Raise the Bar, a perfect combination of intellect and joy. Thanks all who came.
