So, here it is. The website. A tiny corner of cyber-space claimed, tamed, and built upon. All this were virtual fields once, but soon we’ll have roads, street lighting, and a pub over there by that big old tree.  There’s going to be perfect surf, great live bands, and healthcare for all. Just wait. You’re going to love it….

If you’ve been here before you’ll notice that I’ve made a few changes. The website’s been up and running for a few years now, and I wanted to freshen it up a bit. Website construction is less of a mystery to me than it used to be, and it’s been a while since I had to call in my cyber-guru to dig me out of the cyber-mire, so I’ve thrown caution to the winds, given the site a quick once over with the cyber-hoover, thrown out some of the junk, and (gulp) added another new page. Or two. Or three.

This site is about my work as a writer. So come on in, make yourself at home, and take a gander. If you’ve been here before, welcome back! Surf the menu at the top of the site to get a taste of everything I’m up to. You’ll find my blog under ‘craic’, my poems under… er… ‘poems’, and so on… The new kid on the block is the ‘videos’ page, which has links to some of my poems on Youtube, and which I’ll be adding to regularly.

If you’re lucky enough to have a few spare coppers burning a hole in your pocket, my books ‘a fine fine place’ and ‘more bees bigger bonnets’ are well worth a punt. My third book ‘Island Songs’ is now sold out.
If you’re skint, of course, enjoying the poems here costs nothing, so fill yer boots.

You’ll find me on Twitter at @BigStevePoet. Alternatively – or indeed, as well – I’ve a mailing list you can sign up to.

And last but by no means least, if you’ve a spoken-word or poetry night you’d like me to perform at, drop me a line at
I love getting out and about and sharing my work. And I’m bloody good at what I do, too.
What on earth have you got to lose?

all the best
