I’ve always worked with words. After lengthy spells using them almost exclusively in public sector communications and as a freelance writer/editor, I’ve returned to using them more single-mindedly in my own poetic practice – celebrating the language, signs and symbols that help us make sense of our relationships with each other and the time and space we share.
I’m a founder of The Museum of Futures and an associate of The Community Brain, an award-winning community interest company that develops community cohesion and wellbeing through arts, education and research.
I’ve participated in exhibitions and performances at the Poetry Society Café, Westminster Reference Library, Rich Mix, and at The Museum of Futures with Writers’ Centre Kingston. I’ve had work in Seethingography (Sampson Low), the Temporary Spaces anthology (Pamenar), ‘Islet Zone’ (Poem Atlas), ‘Poetry Illustrated, a Teenager’s View’ at Royal Marsden, and online journal Versopolis.
Oh, I’m Simon Tyrrell, by the way.
