Neil Fawcett was born in Stockport in 1962. His poetry and songs
move freely from the political to the personal. Neil spent many years
as a teacher and now spends his time writing in a damp shed,
looking after his family or wandering around Greece.
His recent work is influenced by the great Greek communist
poet Yiannis Ritsos, and he’s working on a collection that reflects
this influence. Fawcett has been widely published in magazines,
online and in poetry anthologies.
He has also been well placed in and won a number of international
poetry competitions. Recently Neil has developed an interest in the
synthesis between visual art and poetry. (See Art Poems)
