My name’s Rowan McCabe and I’m a performance poet from Newcastle. I do a bit of comedy, a bit of acting and a bit of music and I try to cram all this into the medium of poetry. I’m also the world’s first door-to-door poet– I knock on strangers’ doors and write poems for them, mainly to try and justify my own ridiculous career choice.
Some people who saw me said this:
“Rowan McCabe[s]… manly bravado covers a troubled emotional child” – Dear Bill Bryson by Ben Aitken
“I’m not sure what it was” – Audience feedback from ARC Stockton
“An original, exciting North East voice with the rare ability to blend humour, insight and brilliant writing and performance” – Kate Fox
