Bert Flitcroft grew up in Lancashire but now lives in the Midlands.
He was Staffordshire Poet Laureate 2015-17.
A graduate of Sheffield University, for some time he has been quietly, unassumingly spreading the poetry word as teacher, mentor, workshop leader, poet-in-residence, and reader. He has two collections of poetry published.
“Bert is a joy to listen to. His sonnet to a bacon sandwich is a wry, insightful comment on the dynamics of a relationship. Like all Bert’s work, it’s delivered with a twinkle in his eye. A master of his craft.”

To find out more about Bert’s experience as a poet and his two published collections see his website: ww.bert-flitcroft-poetry.com
