Poet

Hi. I'm Theo.

 

I'm a poet, performer and workshop facilitator. I have a special interest in how the arts can humanise leaders and corporations. I also specialise in devising intercultural and diversity workshops, using poetry to build empathy across borders.

I studied an MA in Poetry at UEA under George Szirtes and Lavinia Greenlaw. I have been supported by The National Centre for Writing and Apples and Snakes.

Performances at Stainsby Folk Festival, Norwich Arts Centre, Purbeck Arts Week etc. Poems have appeared in journals like:
