Luke Wright tells us how to reach the stage where you can confidently put 'Poet' down on your tax return. The ins and outs of the brave new world of do it yourself artistry are revealed...
Luke Wright writes bawdy bar room ballads about small town tragedies and Westminster rogues. His fast paced, witty poems are crammed full of yummy mummies, debauched Tory grandees, maudlin commuters and leering tabloid paps. His live shows are enjoyed by thousands of people across the world every year, where he mixes the wistful with the downright comic to take audiences on an incredible emotional journey.
