About Andrew

Andrew writes from the heart with a deep sense of integrity, and his poems are instantly recognisable, with a wit and wisdom that allows him to discuss big ideas in ways that are still fully accessible. Whether he’s talking about birch trees or global migration, fox hunting or bras, the British weather or Margaret Thatcher, Andrew’s sense of humour is always evident in his work, and his judicious use of puns, rhymes and wordplay gives his work a thought-provoking depth. He is a writer of many flavours, often funny, sometimes serious, but always open to new ways of looking at the world.

Andrew's first poetry collection, Echoes of My Mind, was published in 2018, and he is a member of Nottingham-based poetry collection DIY Poets.
