During 2010 he produced two books: Whistle with Arrowhead and Boring the Arse Off Young People, an entirely different concoction of funny poems with the fine people at Nasty Little Press. He performed Whistle at Ledbury Poetry Festival and Freeword Flow Festival and will start touring it in 2011. His poem ‘Victor’ won the Poetry Society’s 2010 Hamish Canham Prize.
He is chair of Café Writers and comperes it with varying degrees of incompetence in Norwich every month. He’s also a founder member of Norwich Poetry Club, another monthly live lit event in this fine city. In 2011 Whistle recieved another major Arts Council Award under the East to Edinburgh scheme to do a full run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It recently completed a regional tour and has a number of dates lining up for 2012, including a weeks run in London (details to follow). Reviews for Edinburgh are here.
He’s taught poetry & photography (sometimes both at once) and performance to students from reception classes, MA Groups, support groups, prisoners, excluded pupils and all sorts of other people. He has an MA, with Distinction, in ‘Writing the Visual’ from the then Norwich School of Art & Design.
