 'Those People' was a winner in the 2014/15 Poetry Business Competition, judged by Billy Collins.

 

‘Funny and quite serious at the same time, these poems cast a fresh, ironic eye on contemporary life and find a wild variety of fields in which to play.  The colloquial tone and satiric brilliance might make a reader wish to hear more, ideally over a pint or two.’

 

– Billy Collins

 

'Paul’s work is often highly experimental, pushing the boundaries of forms received and invented [...] Other, more personal poems, tease out the liminal awkwardness of adolescence. Using words as footholds, Paul’s poems stride confidently into thrilling, uncharted terrain.'

 – Robert Peake, The Huffington Post
