Steve Pottinger

Steve Pottinger is a dynamic and engaging performance poet, and an experienced workshop facilitator who shoe-horns spoken-word gigs into his busy schedule when he’s not plotting a benign world domination underpinned by sourdough bread and beer.

He is a winner of the Culture Matters poetry and spoken word competitions, was runner-up in the 2019 Prole poetry competition, an ‘on the buses’ winner in the Guernsey International, joint 2nd in Poets & Players 2023 competition, has been shortlisted and/or commended in competitions such as Plough and Arran, and has had his work widely published.

Steve’s sixth volume of poems thirty-one small acts… is published through Ignite. His previous titles have all sold out, but are still available as digital copies from all the usual outlets.
