Hello. My blog is all about the poems I have written and what led me to write them.
I have been writing poetry since childhood. So I’ve called it ‘My Life in Poems’.
I’m a copywriter, lecturer, poet, author (“How to get into Advertising”, Cengage Learning) and the founder of Get into Advertising Training Workshops: http://www.getintoadvertising.co.uk
My poetry has been published in poetry journals (both here and in the States), broadcast on the BBC and on Harlech TV.
I have read my own poems on Radio 3 (Poetry Now with George MacBeth) and on Radio London (now LBC).
In my twenties I was a regular reader on the poetry circuit. A member of the Poetry Society, I took part in “Poetry and Jazz” and folk club readings.
I have read alongside Roger McGough, Bernard Kops, Dannie Abse and – at the Poetry Society – the late weird and wonderful Stevie Smith.
If you enjoy reading my poems, please let me know.
I look forward to reading your comments and to sharing my life in poems with you.
