James Nash

James Nash is a writer, poet and teacher based in Leeds. I spend much of my week working from home [at present on my next collection of poetry to be published in October 2018] or in schools, libraries and other venues within Yorkshire. But as Leeds is a city with great travel connections, there aren’t many parts of the country I can’t get to and back within the day. I travel by train, bus and taxi. This suits me. I have time to write, to read and to observe the world.
