Mark Connors - Twitter Tales

Mark Connors - author and poet

Ilkley Literature Festival's Open Mic winner for 2014 and 2015!

"I first met Mark when he came in to East Leeds FM where I produce and present a programme called Love The Words. On that occasion Mark read his ingenious and witty Tweet poems. Since then he's been a regular contributor to the show and it's been great to watch his emergence on the writing scene in Leeds as a presence and a personality. The ambition and scale of his writing has grown in parallel".
Peter Spafford

"When he reads his work - from memory - it is truly organic; just a man and his words."
Gill Lambert
