We recently spoke about Phoenix FM presenter Stewart Pink who recently published a book of new poems, Pandemic Poetry: The Covid Collection.
It now appears we’ve now got not just one but two published poets on the station! Our Arts Programme co-presenter Rob West has published a new book called Words, Words, Words.
Rob has worked professionally as an actor, writer, and director but has also had a number of roles including Children’s Entertainer, Football Coach and Creative Writing Tutor, not forgetting Arts Radio Show presenter of course!
His new book is a collection of poems that Rob has written on scraps of paper and in notebooks over the years. Rob found a lot of these in his loft while doing a lockdown clearout (which I’m still getting round to doing), and rather than throw them all out decided to do something positive with them.
Rob has pulled them all together into an anthology of poems with a short insight into each poem alongside.
The book is available via the publishers xlibris, via Amazon (also available on Kindle), and you can get it via various other online book retailers. People can also contact me directly via firstname.lastname@example.org to buy a copy.
