My name is David Agnew and I write poetry.

That seems more real than saying I am a poet.

What I really think I am is a story teller – it just happens that the stories emerge in poetic form

And I know that poetry allows me to say things and express feelings that I am not able to say using prose.

My poems have appeared in –

Anthologies –

Satiated Sunrise
Patterns of Hope

Magazines –

Red Ink
Speech Therapy

Public Places –

Walls of waiting rooms in Leeds hospitals
Nostell Priory Poetry Trail

And I understand my poem “Barney the Parrot” has been used as an example in a workshop on writing about animals

There will be some words to go in here later on
