Welcome to the place where I talk objectively about my output. This includes non-fiction, critical essays, poetry and fiction works. I shout at clouds, with statistically proven attempts of success. The personal renaissance granted me a shortlist place in July 2020, don’t expect it to be the last one either. I come for you, writing prizes.

There are various means of supporting my work:
I no longer require Gumroad’s services, thanks to WordPress. I’m now capable of processing my own online payments and creating my own members only website content. Clearly they heard this, and have now launched a legitimate competitor for Patreon just to spite me ^^ As a result, we’ll be investigating some new avenues in 2021.
Needless to say, change is coming.
Currently, In Progress: MMXCI began serialization via Patreon in September. It will require a significant edit, however, considering the current climate and my increasing understanding of the world around me. Learning about what is morally correct or not is currently a full-time job. I’ll need to have my eyes far more open.
We have a completed NaNoWriMo effort from 2020. That will be punted to some people going forward.
In Episodic Fiction News… EX/WHI finally returns in 2021. Patreon now has its own serialised flash fiction story too: The Nexus Bar and Grill also began in September, 2020. Full details and synopses are now available via the Patreon link above.
24 Poems about Southend on Sea
I was asked to sign a rights form for one of my poems, for possible inclusion in BBC1’s ‘Countryfile’ but I never made the final report. However, one poem from the selection (A13, Trunk Road of the Free) has been chosen to be included in the official published ‘Places of Poetry’ anthology, which will be published by OneWorld Publications on October 1st.
Oh yeah, and I was interviewed for the Telegraph’s Lifestyle section which appeared in print on September 27th. RAR.

I was a winner of the Members’ Poems competition in the Winter 2018 issue of Poetry News, official publication of the Poetry Society. The theme of the contest was ‘The Abstract Space’, inspired by the poetry of W.S. Graham and judged by Rachael Boast. The poem that won, The Beast in Cyberspace, can be read on the Poetry Society’s website. I performed this piece live at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden on February 8th.
I also performed live at Metal‘s Future Park event on September 20th. That makes three spoken word appearances this year (yes I’m totally counting Mslexicon’s Open Mic in that) and that will be improved upon in 2020.
A MAJOR shift in the direction of Multidisciplined Art is on the cards. You heard it here first.
REAL LIFE GUBBINS:
This section will be updated shortly.
Other poetry and writing gubbins will appear on @MoveablePress or @InternetofWords via Twitter. Note my Twitter handle’s changed. Don’t trust whoever it is pretending to be @AlternativeChat. They’re lying.
YouTube Channel is here.
Video is now in Progress <3
We don’t go on Facebook or Instagram. They are silly places.
