I am a playwright by trade but moonlight as a poet. My first collection 'Beside the See-side' is published by Flapjack Press- here The musical 'Dreamers' I have co-written with Lindsay Williams opens at Oldham Coliseum in June. Yes. It is about the nightclub in Oldham. My plays have become more poetic and lyrical naturally over the last couple of years. I love words. I read my poems out sometimes. My poems will be on some sculptures this year. Please send chufty badges to Flapjack Press


Cross-eyed. I have two frames of mind, One side is blind, But I do Like to be Beside the See Side

Thank you Cathy - I only really wrote it for her eyes, and when she didn't get to see it, I didn't know what else to do with it.

Hello Cathy .. yes I can see your interpretation of people not being given the truth about numbers .. I was thinking about how quickly a tragedy disappears from the news leaving just the family to grieve .. chris.

Hi Crabb - welcome to WOL. I like your profile page poems - hope to see some of your work on the blog section soon. Have you passed this way before? I gather from Steve's comment that you have - if so, welcome back!

Apologies - I think in my welcome message to you I said it would be good if you could put some poems on your profile page - I was "round-robinning" a message to somebody who hadn't got any poems on their page. I can see that you have poems on your page :)
