Who is Neil Laurenson?

Neil used to dress up as Tony Blair and assumed that people would interpret this habit as a protest rather than a tribute. He has since become a parent and a councillor and has resisted the urge to wear a latex mask to make a point. His children are grateful for this.

He has read at the Cheltenham Poetry Festival, Ledbury Poetry Festival, Worcester Lit Fest & Fringe and in several other places. He will do more poetry readings in exchange for sporadic applause.

His debut poetry book Exclamation Marx! was published by Silhouette Press.
