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)
