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, welcome back. If you haven’t, where have you been?? Just give me a moment or two to give the place a quick once over with the virtual hoover, empty the bins and open the windows. There, it’s better already. Come on in.

This site is about my work as a writer. So grab a cuppa, make yourself at home, and take a gander. 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… All pretty obvious. It’s poetry, not rocket science.

If you’re lucky enough to have a few spare coppers burning a hole in your pocket, my fifth book ‘a fine fine place’ is well worth a punt. All the earlier ones are now sold out, but you can enjoy some of them here, free, gratis, and for nothing. Useful if you’re skint, that is, so fill yer boots.

You can follow me on Twitter at @BigStevePoet if you’re so inclined. Alternatively – or indeed, as well – I’ve a mailing list you can sign up to. Subscribing is easy – click on this link and it’ll open up a new page. Enter your email address, confirm it by responding to our automated email, and you’re on the list!

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
