About K
I'm a poet, editor and voice actor.

Born in Lincolnshire, I now live in London, where I co-run Sidekick Books with fellow poet Jon Stone. I've edited more than ten mixed-media anthologies on subjects ranging from robots and AI to new translations of Catullus.

My own work has been widely anthologised, published by Happenstance and Salt, and thrown out of a helicopter. I have taught folklore and feedback for the Poetry School, spoken on panels and read my work in cinemas, libraries and railway stations.

As a voice actor, I've worked with a range of organisations, including the Wellcome Trust, the Fairtrade Foundation and the British Academy. I love bringing stories to life, and learning more about the world as I do. Find out more here.

I love crows, robots and crowbots, and accept all three as bribes.
