Peter Roe lives in Bridport on the Jurassic Coast but was born and raised a ‘Northern Lad’ in Buxton in the Peak District. He is a poet, writer, film-maker and self confessed nerd who likes to shatter peoples misconceptions about computer geeks and anoraks!
Many of Peter’s poems come out of that bit of the world where technology meets people and the mayhem that follows. In this collection he also turns his attention to Dr Roberts, Mary Anning, Judge Jeffreys, tractors, moustaches, mental illness, medicine, diets, food, nature and impossible cats.
Peter has been The Deputy Bard of Caer Dur (Dorchester) and has been actively ‘slamming’ on the South-West poetry circuit. He was a finalist in the Apples and Snakes South-West Slam in 2018, Long listed in the 'Writing Without Limits' category for The Yeovil Literary Prize 2017 and winner of The Western Gazette Best Local Writer 2017 for his poem War of The Words.
