THE QUANTUM POET...how it all began
I started my journey into the poetic spotlight as part of underground bohemian collective The 4 Poets, writing poems for various events gave me a unique opportunity to gain insight into what makes a poem work live and often far more importantly, exactly what doesn’t!
As is the way of life, change happened, which saw me have my Beatles moment and leave The 4 Poets to explore within my own creativity, to finally write for the sheer pleasure of telling stories which rhymed (sometimes!).
My first poetry book The Lancashire Poems eventually came out in early 2013, closely followed by sister collection The Cheshire Poems. The next eighteen months saw your poet performing across those two counties, and also a little further afield at libraries, festivals, museums and literary events.
Why The Quantum Poet?
This fair question is the one I get asked in every interview and at most live shows. Short story - in 2013 I visited many places in the UK touring, on a radio show the host insisted on referring to me during the entire interview as Dean Fraser - The Quantum Poet (I had been trying to establish the name The Folk Poet up until that point) I liked the sound of it and so I kept it! I finally found out recently why he felt compelled to call me The Quantum Poet, knowing of my other role as a self-realisation coach, he thought the name fitted me...I guess he was proved right!
I am available for live events. Currently I am touring my anthology 247 Poems during 2019 into 2020.
The show lasts about an hour. Get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
