I’m a professional copywriter, and an amateur comedy and verse writer.
I’ve won a few poetry slams, and been a guest performer at open mics and poetry events across the West Midlands. I’m also an occasional gag-writer for Radio 4 comedy.
I’m into wit, satire, brevity, form and subtlety. Writers I wish I were include Jane Austen, Will Self, and almost every other member of Bridgnorth Writers Group.
