Welcome to dipdoomagazoo, where I blog and post details of forthcoming gigs and workshops.

I’ve been writing for over 30 years: journalism, songs, non-fiction and…poetry. I love poetry. I love reading it and writing it. I also love learning new work off by heart in order to perform in front of a receptive audience.

I live and work in Whitley Bay. It’s in North East England, beside the North Sea, opposite Scandinavia. Living in Whitley Bay gives me the opportunity to scamper all over Tyne and Wear and beyond.

Here’s a pic of me taken in Northumberland’s beautiful College Valley in April 2016:
