Matt Simpson Dies

For those of you have anything to do with the poetry scene in Liverpool, there are two words that will make you smile, Matt Simpson. I met Matt several times under different guises, first as a performance poet, then as a journalist and then as an academic and at each meeting he was warm, friendly and a mine of information. He was also someone you could trust to be honest. He was always willing to give advice, point you in the right direction and introduce you to other poets.

I was sad to learn that he died after going into hospital last week.
