eyup! i’m Matt Abbott, and i’m a Wakefield-born poet, educator, and activist. my ‘grown-up’ themes mainly centre around social commentary, the human side of political issues, and kitchen sink realism.
my poetry for children centres around playful rebellion, challenging societal stereotypes and the struggles of modern life.
i’m available for performances, educational work and commissions worldwide. feel free to contact me for further information! i’m also known for being the lyricist/frontman in indie band Skint & Demoralised and for running spoken word record label Nymphs & Thugs.
