About Me

So, here it is. The website. Re-fettled and raring to go.

We’ve updated the things which needed updating, cleared out the clutter, and had a bit of a tidy up. Street lighting’s off at night so we can see the stars, and we’ve added wildflower verges, bird boxes, beehives, and a wildlife pond out front of the old pub where you can sit in the sunshine and watch the dragonflies. They’re amazing.

This site is about my work as a writer. It’s fairly self-explanatory, and by simply surfing the menu at the top of the site you’ll get a taste of what I’m up to. My blog is under ‘craic’, my poems under… er… ‘poems’, you can buy my books at ‘works’… and so on. It’s all pretty obvious – this is poetry, not rocket science, after all.

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 just follow the instructions.

Last but by no means least, I love getting out and about and sharing my work. If you’ve a spoken-word or poetry night you’d like me to perform at, are looking for a commissioned poem for a project, want an experienced poet to run a workshop for your group, or just want to say ‘hi’, get in touch. Drop me a line at steve@stevepottinger.co.uk.

Come in, sit down, grab a pint, and make yourself at home. You’ll love it here, I promise.

all the best
