About

I am a poet based in Folkestone, UK. I have been writing for several years and draw my influences from poets such as Rumi, Bob Dylan, Scroobius Pip and Inua Ellams.

Graduating with a degree in Journalism and Media Studies, I now enjoy reading and learning about philosophy, psychology and physics. I have a strong interest in yoga, meditation and tea. My poems tend to draw on these interests, some with a social outlook as well.

Performance is as enjoyable as writing for me and run an open stage every Sunday 2pm until 5pm at The Lime Bar, Folkestone. My first book Visible Thoughts came out in September 2017 and a second is in progress!

Beyond poetry, I am involved in my community and enjoy finding ways to live sustainably and to give back. I do commissions and would love to hear from you.

Kind regards,

Dave James Horn
