Matt Black is a writer based in Sheffield and Leamington Spa. He writes poems (and occasionally fiction) for adults and children. He writes for publication on the page as well as for Spoken Word and performance.
“Matt Black is a poet who wears his heart on his sleeve and his skill in his pen; his poems in Swimmer show that poetry can be a healing art, a celebratory art and an art that can best illuminate the times we live in. More power to his shining work – this collection is splendid.” – Ian McMillan
