Who am I? I'm a poet and writer with more than twenty years' experience and about 60 poems published in literary magazines, anthologies and on websites. I have a Masters, at Distinction level, in Creative Writing; fifteen years' experience in running a writers' group, ten years of reading live and have organised writing events and festivals from local to national level as well as giving workshops and judging competitions. I completed a WEM course in mentoring writers in 2018 and realised that this is what I want to do when I grow up.
Gary Carr began writing more than twenty years ago, has been running Runaway Writers' Group for more than fifteen and has been organising and MCing open mics in the Midlands for more than ten years. He continued to run a range of meetings and events on Zoom throughout Covid-19 lockdowns and has used the experience to create hybrid Zoom/live events ("Distraction") as accessible open mics. His first collection, In a Town, was released in 2021 by Dream Well and he currently edits off-centre magazine for writers and visual artists.
