Writer Biography

I’m a Nottingham based performance poet and walking miracle. For about ten years I struggled with heroin and crack cocaine addiction and have been clean for nearly 5 years now. I also struggle with manic depression, which can be debilitating, but writing gives me a sense of release, and it is my hope that one day my work gains wider recognition. Please go to my Soundcloud link to hear me perform and let me know your thoughts. Many thanks for stopping by! Alex x

Guest poet on 3 occasions at the Alley Cafe’s ‘Speak Easy’ event in Nottingham. Several performances at festivals and bars around the country.

  • Workshops
  • Community Group Work
  • Volunteering
  • Websites, blogs and links to work

    Some of my spoken word available to hear.
