Many of Math’s magical, moving and evocative poems were written in and about Worcester, and, he says ‘in many ways owe their existence to the support and enthusiasm of the people of the Worcestershire literary world.’

‘Math has a beautiful elegance with words, whether he is writing from a character’s or his own perspective there is always something to learn about the human condition.’
Jake Wild Hall—Boomerang Club, author of ‘Solomon’s World’

Math has been well-known and loved on the Worcester scene for many years and is now sharing his talents in London. He returns to Worcester for the launch of his first collection of poetry ‘Sabrina Bridge’ a celebration of Worcestershire with a mix of others including the magical ‘Puck In Love’:

“oakley’s considered words speak beautifully of the belligerence that has become our everyday. It is epic in its ache and soothing in its soulfulness.”

Sabrina Mahfouz

“truthful, damning, cathartic. 

oakley’s collection speaks of the rotting mulch we live in, hoping for new shoots to sprout.”

—Polarbear

“a precious work holding an energy that makes the reader exhale in awe between each poem; oakley is really something.” 

—Caleb Femi—Young People’s Laureate for London
