Teacher, compere, performer and poet, Winston Plowes spends his days fine-tuning background noise and rescuing discarded words. These are re-sculpted over a glass of wine into magical poetry birds he releases by night to fly to new homes in journals and online destinations worldwide.
He lives in a floating home in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire UK, were he tries to persuade his black cat, ‘Fatty’ that it’s a good idea for her to do the same.

Visit 'Random Acts of Poetry' and learn about Winston's commemorative microchap, 'Hebden's Bridges.' His five poems showcase aspects of life in Hebden Bridge, Calderdale in northern UK. Under his guidance and inspired formatting suggestions, this microchap presents his poems paired with sections of a map showing the town's canals and rivers.
The Origami Poems Project was thrilled and honored to participate in the Hebden Bridge's summer 2017 Arts festival. The palm-sized microchaps were made available at this multi-faceted gathering during the event from 23rd June to 2nd July 2017. hebdenbridgeartsfestival.co.uk/
