Henderson Downing

Cornish writer and musician Henderson Downing currently lives in London. An award-winning haiku poet, he has written for various literary journals and small press magazines. He is a founding member of Fol, plays his own style of 'lazy drums' for misfit pop-rockers The Colonies, and splits his part-time working world between a leading architectural school in Bloomsbury and a misleading bookstore in Notting Hill.
