Marcus Moore

Freelance writer and former teacher

A former teacher, Marcus Moore has worked for the last three decades as a freelance writer, theatre practitioner and arts consultant.

Adventures include scriptwriting for the BBC, production manager of the Cheltenham Festival of Literature, writing residencies in HMPs Gloucester and Leyhill, touring garden sheds as a theatrical performer, and having once conducted a mobile phone orchestra at a prestigious music festival. He continues to run creative workshops in schools, host poetry slams, and deliver street recitations as an Emergency Poet on Call.

Ethical considerations mean Marcus has never learned to drive or had a passport. He considers himself well-informed on significant matters of public interest, despite having not owned a television for a quarter of century. Since April of this year, he has been writing an online 'Journal of a Journeyman Writer'. Each daily entry is written to an exact 2011 characters. This can be found at:
