    BBC news door to door poetry ( hampstead highgate – lock the doors) 16.02.17
    what a idea that s rare
    i love every single inch
    first i am dropping pond square
    on the north road get ready to flinch.
    second to go is the grove
    this road brings nothing but pain
    its just a pressure cooker on stove
    i will knock every door on hampstead lane.
    number 3 is not sacred
    can not wait to knock it off its perch
    working my way up highgate hill is not hatred
    but more useful then st josephs church.
    recycling will finish
    it was a environmental disaster
    no carbon foot print so no vanish
    but its 3 less i need to plaster.
    poetry will arrive
    hampstead and highgate stand by your door
    this is now how i will duck and dive
    rowan mccabe you are ingenious infarct top draw.

    I heard you on the radio today and I was really touched and impressed (perhaps being touched always makes an impression – apologies for punning!). Good luck – your heart will lead you to the places you are needed. Stephanie

    Hello Rowan

    I should have checked your biog first. I heard you on Steve Wright yesterday, and I thought you must be a sanddancer like me. Please read my previous correspondence above.

    Hi Rowan
    My name is moyra Campbell and you wrote a beautiful poem inspired on the experiences of my husband Alan Campbell
    You used his interview for the BBC breakfast show
    I am emailing you to tell you that Alan died yesterday
    He had a fall two weeks ago and suffered serious head injuries
    After a traumatic operation to relieve pressure he never recovered
    His death has devastated all his friends and family but I know that his experience with you was definitely one of the highlights of his life
    He was proud of your poem and was honoured that you highlighted his beliefs on racism
    Hope you don’t mind me emailing but I know Alan would have wanted me to let you know

    • Hi Moyra,

      I’m so sad and shocked to hear this. The fact you’ve contacted me to let me know means so much. Getting to know Alan and sharing this experience with him was genuinely one of the most lovely and rewarding things I’ve ever done. I’ve just come out of doing a show about what happened to me as a Door to Door Poet at the Edinburgh Fringe. Every day for a month Ive been getting up and sharing the story of Alans childhood with a room full of strangers who’ve often commented on how much of a great person he sounded like. My thoughts are with you and the whole family. If there’s anything at all I can do please don’t hesitate to get in touch at or my number is 07549391171

      Warmest regards,
