Poems in Journals

John McGivering Poetry Prize 2021 Judges’ Report by Harry Ricketts and Jan Montefiore: “The standard of entries was high; reading them was an exhilarating experience. Only a minority of the entries chose to engage with Kipling's work, but nearly all competitors handled the topic of travel with liveliness and skill.”
Since the publication of his Piers Plowman, other poems by Peter Sutton have been published in poetry journals such as HQ, Orbis, Poetry Salzburg Review and Sarasvati. For details see the Poetry section of his full c.v. (link below). He regularly reads from his work at Ledbury Poetry Salons and other West Midlands events.

“engaging mixture of humor, wordplay, grit, and mythology”
“cleverly mixing humour with very dark subjects”
“tremendously energetic and playful...”

“Peter made the stage come alive”
