Bobby Parker is a poet and artist who grew up and currently lives in Kidderminster, West Midlands. His publication history starts around ten years ago, published widely in poetry magazines in print and on-line. His first pamphlet ‘Pictures of Screaming People’ (Erbacce Press) was published in 2011, followed by ‘Ghost Town Music' (Knives Forks and Spoons Press), ‘Under the Bed’ (Victorian Violet Press) ‘Digging for Toys’ (Indigo Dreams), ‘Building Murder with a Smile’ (Red Ceilings Press), and ‘Comberton’ (Knives Forks and Spoons Press). Nine Arches Press published ‘Blue Movie’ - his first full-length collection of poetry – on Halloween 2014. He has written articles on poetry for The Quietus, and his controversial poem ‘Thank You For Swallowing My Cum’ was included in Best British Poetry 2015 (Salt Publishing - edited by Emily Berry). He has taught poetry workshops for Buzzwords in Cheltenham, and has toured the UK consistently for the past few years, promoting his books, mental health awareness and encouraging people to explore the possibilities of poetry. His next collection - Working Class Voodoo - will be released from Offord Road Books in Spring 2018 (pre-order here!). In 2015 he was awarded a grant from the Society of Authors to help with his current projects.
