“Mike Garry is the poet laureate of the north.” Louder than War.

A librarian for 15 years before becoming a poet, Mike began by reading his own poems to the hundreds of young people who attended his Library Homework Centre. They loved what they heard and encouraged him to perform them at live poetry events and Slams, which he did, instantly winning fans and prizes throughout the UK.

Since then he’s become known for his passionate, swirling rhythms of thoughts and emotions which convert into monologues of quick fire words. He’s been touring with our Poetry, Literature and Talks headliner Dr John Cooper Clarke since 2010 who had this to say about Mike, “I liked what he said and the way he said it”.
