This Is Me

Welcome to my website of poems, lyrics and performances. There should be something for everyone here, including children's poems, satirical poems, love poems, lyrics, and videos of some of my live performances.

I have been writing poetry on a regular basis since secondary school. I have run poetry sessions in primary and secondary schools, featured on local radio and been a finalist in the 'Lyrics Only' section of the UK Songwriting competition.

I have also had one of my poems read out to the snooker player Mark Williams on BBC TV, and also had celebrity approvals from the likes of Ben Shephard, Colin Murray, Stephen Hendry and Matthew Le Tissier.

Below are some of my book titles, and below that some of my press clippings, photos and past achievements. Please contact me at gs1975@hotmail.co.uk for school bookings, queries about bespoke poems or any other information.

George spent a joyful day with us a Pontesbury CE Primary school. After a whole school assembly - filled with poetry, humour and inspiration - our children participated in poetry workshops. It was such a great experience for them to work alongside a 'real life' writer and to share in the creative process of writing with him. George imparted his love of word play and left the children eager to read more poetry and to continue writing their own - what more could we ask for?
