Rob Walton

Rob Walton has performed, written and taught in the North East for a number of years.  A graduate of Newcastle University’s Creative Writing MA, he has written gardening columns for the Hull Daily Mail, an online schools’ resource for the Tyneside Cinema, columns for Scunthorpe United’s matchday programme, books for teachers and numerous articles for education magazines. He has also written for performance, including several pantomimes and shows for The Big Fun Club.  He has collaborated on projects such as Parky Tales for Newcastle Gateshead Initiative/Magnetic Events’ Enchanted Parks.  In 2012 he worked with sculptor Russ Coleman and the local community to write the text for the New Hartley Memorial Pathway.  He was commissioned by New Writing North to write a short story to coincide with the refurbishment of Tynemouth’s Metro station, published in Platform.  His short story A Drop of Golden Sun is to be published in Positional Vertigo by Askance Publishing.  Crazy Paving will appear next year in an Iron Press anthology. His short stories and flash fictions have appeared on numerous websites, including Pygmy Giant, Paragraph Planet, National Flash Fiction Day and 1000words.  He lives in North Shields with his partner and two daughters.

Rob’s stories for Stations, Yellow Tulips, and Lenny Bolton Changes Trains are set at New Cross and Whitechapel. They concern an awkward not-quite-love triangle, and an exhibition that defies the boundaries of a gallery.
