Professional work


I sometime get asked if poets make much money; and I have to explain that many of us earn a living in lots of different ways which may be related to, or follow on from, our writing.

This section describes much of my professional life, in terms of the work I do in schools, the workshops I run with writers’ and readers’ groups, and the increasing requests in recent years, which I get to host events. It also details my work as a performer and writer throughout the UK.

A quick view of my professional life can also be experienced by looking at my CV.
