Math Jones

Math Jones - Geoff Robinson, photographerMath Jones was born, and currently lives, in London, but lived in Worcester for many years. A pagan in the Old English and Norse tradition, he often writes poetry on the stories and in the metres of that tradition. He also writes more usual verses, performing throughout the Midlands and London. A bookseller for many years, he retrained in 2008 to be an actor, and has been acting professionally since then, as Math Sams. He has understudied a major role in a West End show.

We are publishing Math’s collection, The Knotsman, in April 2019.

Math has published two poems in Melpomene (anthology); two in Northern Traditions (anthology); three in Ripples (anthology); individual poems in various magazines: Decanto, Iota, Be, Hex, Ravenbred, Lina, The Wain, Withowinde, Kvasir, Pagan Dawn. Collections: Eaglespit (self-published) and Sabrina Bridge, (Black Pear Press)

Math describes his poem for The Other Side of Sleep, Grithspell, as two tribes of gods meeting to declare an end to their war.
(Grith is an Old English word for truce; spell in that period is a word for something spoken.)

Maths Poem Yes, Twilight was read at the Greenwich leg of Solstice Shorts Festival 2017 and is published in Dusk.
