I live in the north-east uk and have been writing poems for over 20 years as a hobby. They have helped me through life by turning often bad situations into positive ones.
Until now only friends,family and colleagues have been listening to them and when online I felt as if my poetry didn't easily sit with mainstream competitions and websites. It is refreshing to finally be able to read similar poems are on this website as I have never met anyone in my local area that writes poetry at all.
I love photography,astronomy,camping in the uk,motorbikes,nature & fossil hunting and music. I have a trombone that has sat neglected for a while and I am trying to learn electric guitar (with slow progress so far).I work in an office dreaming of the day i can do something a bit more creative-even if it's with my current employer
