Gary Knapton

I’m a 39 (40 in June) father of two teenage daughters.
I’m getting married for the first time in May.
I work in mental health.
I left school with very little & consequently had to go to college and university to get educated.
I started writing poetry semi seriously at university (well I was bored) and have had several pieces published in anthologies, such as forward press.
I don’t really do football, politics, or religion - I tend to get myself in trouble.
My poetry is mostly observational & I guess by default there are bits of me in it.
I’ll often see or hear something & if I can remember it I’ll write about it. I often write a whole poem just for one line I’ve heard & like the sound of.
