Mainly I write, though I have also dabbled in visual arts and music.  I retired a few years ago, so I have more time to devote to writing, and I’m hoping that joining ICAN will help to motivate me!


Most of my output is poetry; I’ve had some acceptances in small press magazines, one or two in mainstream mags. By aptitude I am more of a prose writer; I’ve sold a few stories and articles, plus had pieces published in online magazines.


One of the main things that interests me about ICAN is the chance to exchange ideas, and collaborate with, other artists. E.g. I am interested in trying my hand at writing song lyrics so I would welcome the chance to team up with any musicians with a view to this.

How to contact Dave... don't forget to mention ICAN!
