coveted school prize for poetry in his last year, he has been writing seriously for publication since

appearance on Granada TV frightened the life out of him while, appearing live at a Candlelight Vigil

variety of journals, winners anthologies and established poetry magazines. A non-Catholic, his work
has even appeared in The Catholic Times. He now lives in central Manchester where, after a bit of a
break, he is back to reading and writing lots of poetry. He currently has in the order of sixty poems

At the age of 29, Alex Frankel has already abandoned successive
careers in the Foreign Office
and the IT industry.† He is currently living in Hong Kong, where his
girlfriend works.† He still
writes the occasional poem about life, love or bottoms and also
dabbles in Community Theatre,
sings in Karaoke bars and toys with the idea of doing some English
teaching (when his
savings are exhausted).† Alex won the Poem of the Month Competition in
February 1998.† This
was the only poetry competition he has ever entered, so he has since
then entered no others,
for fear of ruining his 100% success rate!
Alex has now published The Status Report which is a collection of offbeat poetry (often, but not
always humourous) on diverse themes ranging from computer training to body odour in the office,
from dinner party small talk to constipation. Many of the poems were originally written as
entertainment for bored office colleagues, so were inspired by office subject matter, such as 'The
Bogey on My Keyboard' and 'The Death of Derek the Desk Tidier'. Many of the poems have simple
comic intent, while others embrace more serious themes and styles. Visit frankly.users.btopenworld.com to read more about it and enjoy his poems.

Peter Howard Peter Howard is yet another Oxford-educated, white, male,
middle class poet. At
least he read Physics and Philosophy rather than English, and his
Cambridge address has
slightly more credibility than a London one would have. He hasn't had
a career as
stevedore/barman/executive/cordon- bleu chef, though apart from an
early indiscretion as a
teacher, he has managed to avoid academia by becoming a
telecommunications system design
consultant (whatever that is). His penchant for irony frequently lands
him in trouble.
These poems are modern and treat serious issues with his particular
touch of humour.
