And welcome to my website. My name’s Mark. I’m a Spoken Word artist and educator based in Peterborough. I left teaching three years ago to explore poetry and my love of words, and I now write poems and shows for people. It's my favourite job to date.

It's been a great year so far, with a sold out National tour, a TV show with Channel 4, commissions for BBC 1, MTV, Channel 4, Radio 1, Radio 5 Live and trips out to Singapore, The Isle of Man and Jersey. I'm currently writing new material for Youtube, putting together my first poetry collection and finalising a National tour for the Spring/Summer of 2015. I'll keep you guys updated as soon as I have more info!

I hope that you enjoy looking around the website and that you find what you're looking for - why not check out the video below to start? It's my newest piece, and I'm really proud of it.

If you want to get hold of me for any reason, please feel free to contact me at grist_mark@hotmail.com
