    Poetry

    Dr. Mike Garry was a librarian for 15 years before becoming a full time poet. His gritty poetry has won the admiration far and wide and his collaboration with New Order in New York’s Carnegie Hall in 2014 received five star reviews.

    Championed by Philip Glass for whom Mike has worked with since 2014 playing live shows in U.S.A and Europe.

    His Ode To  St Anthony , a poem dedicated to the Factory Records boss Tony Wilson and put to classical music by the composer Joe Duddell, went to Number 1 in 3 Official UK charts in August 2015.

    He has worked in thousands of educational establishments and his books have become schemes of work in schools throughout the UK.

    His poetry is regularly heard on BBC TV & Radio.

    Mike has toured with John Cooper Clarke since 2009 opening shows for him in UK, Europe, the USA & Canada.  He’s even had the honour of reading a CBeebies Bedtime story.

    He has read his poems in Prisons, Young Offenders Institutes, Mental Health Hospitals, recovery units, Children’s Homes, youth clubs and local pubs. He’s passionate about bringing live poetry to places it wouldn’t normally reach and to people who wouldn’t normally listen to it.  He works tirelessly to bring reading and literature to young people and was awarded an honorary Doctorate by Manchester Metropolitan University for his work.  He is writer in Residence at the University of Westminster.
