David Viney

@vineypoet

Viney grew up in Stretford, Manchester and started writing poetry and short stories at the age of 14 (largely in secret - due to a shortage of poets in the area and an excess of people who liked to punch poets in the face). Co-host of Bang Said the Gun: Manchester and a regular guest at poetry nights across the UK, he has written and performed for BBC Manchester Radio and, as part of Working Verse Collective, written and performed two sell out shows at the Lowry Theatre in Salford. In 2013, Dave was the Poet Laureate of Kendal Calling Festival and the following year debuted his one man spoken word show, Shapes, at the Edinburgh Fringe.

A new collection, In Orbit, Back Soon, is due in 2021.
