I am currently working on a Performance Poetry project, titled ‘The Best Poet in the Phonebox’. You can follow what I am up to in the world of verse here, or find performances of all my poems in my Poetry Playlist on You Tube. You can even pick out your favourites below.



29 July 2022 – WisBEACH Rock Festival

I will be performing the ‘Best Poet in the Phonebox’ set at the WisBEACH Rock Festival, in Wisbech on Sunday 7th August. Due on stage at 1.30. Many great poets, bands and activities on too. Free admission so come and join us at Wisbech Park. See here for more details.

30 July 2021 – Recordings in Progress

I am in the progress of preparing my first performance poetry video for my Mark Fryday You Tube Channel, which will include some accompanying music by my musical collaborator, Chris Lewis. I write poems to be heard rather than read, so want this to be the first way that people experience them. Further announcements soon…

27 July 2021 – I performed ‘Use your Words’ and ‘I forget’ at the St Ives Poetry club today, at the excellent new Riverport Cafe in the St Ives Corn Exchange in Cambridgeshire. This was the first time ‘I forget’ has been performed in public and I was humbly heartened by all the kind words that followed my performance. I always aim to move people (not out the door though) so it was lovely to get that kind of response.

Thanks to Chris Morgan for the invite. For anyone else in the area who are interested in performing or just enjoying the poetry, the St Ives Poetry Club meets each month at the St Ives Corn Exchange.
