My name is Graeme Richardson. Poet, writer and blogger. By day I work in technology and have been putting pen to paper for years. Why on earth MRPINKSTER, you may ask? it doesn’t sound like a name for a poet! The truth is I was given the nickname years ago for being in possession of a pink lighter. It stuck.
In 2012, a job as The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess‘s writer in residence at his Tim Peaks diner at Kendal Calling music festival, led to a lot of my time being spent on gig reviews and interviewing new up and coming bands. It’s been a fantastic couple of years. Check out the blog to read some.
Time marches on and last year, my very first poetry book was published. It’s called FI Blues.
For more examples of my work take a look here at a selection.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the site.
Now, perhaps it’s time I finished this book about a Disappearing Scotsman.
