Rob Walton

Scunthorpe-born Rob Walton lives with his daughters in Whitley Bay.  His poetry is published by The Emma Press, Strix, Butcher’s Dog, Culture Matters, Atrium and others.  His short fiction is published in the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada and New Zealand.  He collated the New Hartley Memorial Pathway text.  Twitter: @anicelad.

We published Rob’s debut poetry collection, This Poem Here in March 2021, in print and audio!

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.

Rob’s story for DUSK is Words on Paper, and was performed in Carlisle on 21st December at Dusk, and published in the Dusk anthology June 2018

Rob also supplied us with two poems for 2018’s An Outbreak of Peace, and a flash for Story Cities

Rob’s story  for Time and Tide, Solstice Shorts Festival 2019, The Dowager Duchess of Berwick-upon-Tweed May or May Not be Bottling It, was performed at Lisbon and Maryport, and published in the Time and Tide anthology.

Rob was the 2015 winner, and judge of UK’s Nationals Flash Fiction Day micro-fiction competition; and Winner of the Bread and Roses Poetry Award 2019.
