Tim Turnbull has been performing his poetry, at home and abroad, for over twenty years. His first full collection, Stranded in Sub-Atomica, was published by Donut Press on November 11th 2005. He has created stage shows, toured with slam teams, published in numerous anthologies and magazines and tutored at all levels. In 2015 his poem Ode on a Grayson Perry Urn, included in the Forward anthology Poems of the Decade, was among those chosen as set texts for Pearson Edexcel's A level.
His first collection of strange tales 'Silence' and Other Stories is now available from
The ten stories have supernatural themes. Their settings range from rural North Yorkshire and its moors
to the backstreets of North London; from 16th century France to a near-future New York. Some of the protagonists are dangerously delusional, others bewildered dupes, but all are threatened by implacable forces.
His blog Stranded in Sub-Atomica contains new poems and thoughts and is updated somewhat irregularly.
He also paints and produces digital art which he distributes somewhat haphazardly through the medium of Twitter. Please feel free to follow:
Turnbull is an experienced tutor and is available for workshops in writing and performance. Funding assistance for performance or workshops in Scotland is available through the Live Literature Scotland scheme.
Caligula on Ice and Other Poems collection is available from Donut Press using PayPal
