His poems have been published in a number of magazines, including Psychopoetica, Smiths Knoll, ‘still’, Envoi, Iota, Staple, and the Rialto; and in the anthology Beyond Bedla, from Anvil Press; and he has given readings in Bridlington, Beverley, Hull, York, London, and Hastings, and on BBC Local Radio.
