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 and Scroobius Pip.

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

I enjoy performing my poetry at events and run an open mic every Sunday 2pm until 5pm at The Lime Bar, Folkestone. I plan on releasing a book in the near future, and hope poetry becomes an increasingly large part of my life! 

Beyond poetry, and an obligatory day job, I am involved in my community and part of a group, Folkestone Cantiaci, exploring sustainable living and growing the community. I also blend teas with a friend for a local micro pub. I do commissions, I’d love to hear from you. 

Kind regards,

David James Horn
