I'm a Shropshire poet, living in Much Wenlock. I deal with a wide range of subjects, in a variety of forms.

My blog, Paulemic, offers a commentary on culture and the news.

I have had a wide variety of books published, some of which are still available.

I have performed all over the West Midlands, and published a range of books and pamphlets

Examples of my work, and details of performances and publications, can be found in Poems and Plays. There are topical poems in Poems from the News.

My article On the Damascus Road criticises Andrew O’Hagan’s LRB piece about Grenfell Tower.

I worked for thirty years in comprehensive schools, publishing many articles and books on education.

I’m a big believer in self-publishing, but I have to confess that it isn’t always as simple as it looks. See the cautionary tale of Print on Demand.
