Award-winning poet, short fiction writer and playwright for stage and radio - and I love avocadoes!

Background Information

I write poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, radio and stage plays.  I love giving voice to social issues without sounding polemical.  I use humour in my work to put across serious problems, and to draw the audience into the worlds of a huge range of people who otherwise wouldn't have a voice.

I also really love tutoring kids and adults - to help them discover the joy of creating great stories anf finding their own voice and style - and encouraging them to really stretch their writing boundaries.

Birth Place
Hebden Bridge,  England

Twice a Hawthornden Fellow; several national awards for poetry, short fiction, stage and radio plays; Writer-in-Residence for Ty Newydd (Welsh National Writers' Centre), for Leeds Hospitals Trust, for the Pennine Watershed Initiative, and for Hull University Business School, and, currently, for NHS North West. Am also lecturing for MMU (Manchester Metropolitan University), and helping Hull University's Faculty of Health and Social Care find more creative ways of working with their staff, students and patients.

Additional Information

The Thousand Natural Shocks - my 4th poetry collection has just won a couple of awards, and my 5th collection: The Cloud Appreciation Society's Day Out is selling really well. My collection of short stories: Something Vital Fell Through will be published in summer 2013. To order them:
