in Journalism in Sheffield College. The country then spat him out to spend three years teaching English in Poland, till 2000, possibly triggering their membership of the European Union. Having worked as a website designer and Search Engine Optimiser at a time when that was almost seen as a real job, he moved into education, teaching Computing and Media at college back in Scunthorpe. He has now completed ten years as a Lecturer in Further Education, and now faces Brexit and the imminent collapse of Western Civilisation. His principal interests are indie music, comedy, avant-garde cinema and speculative fiction, as well as locked-room murder mysteries, for when he gets access to the Oval Office or Number 10.

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
