Malcolm has been writing poetry and painting for five decades, infrequent performer open to offers.
Born 1944 in Canterbury. Educated Bede Grammar School, Sunderland 1956-60. University of Hull 1972-75. Urban Theology Unit, Sheffield 1976-77.
Currently resides in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Since 2003, I have been undergoing a journey through (and hopefully out of) ME/CFS - many stages of which are inevitably reflected in my poetry and my blog which can be found at: http: //sinnaluvva.blogspot.com/
During this period that simple desire to create has returned!
Perpetual student of Philosophy and Theology. Prolific poetry output in the 1960's, published in various periodicals and 'performed' at various readings in London. Sometime chair of Harrogate Poetry Workshop. When I took up painting (again) in the 1980's the poetic muse seemed to desert me. The dry period followed one where the muse had become far too effusive and, to coin a sculptural metaphor, the effort of chipping away at a stone to find the innate form became too arduous.
