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’:

‘…with Mustardseed. They kiss, of course—just tongues, / or lips, not both—keep something back.

‘Tales From The Forest’–a great read

Front Cover TalesA successful playwright, Mark Billen has turned his hand to short stories. He says ‘You won’t find The Forest, Whytteford, Humbury, Salchester, or any of the villages, on a map.’ His wonderful locations in which ‘Tales from the Forest’ is set include Whytteford, with a church in ‘a rather isolated spot in a hidden valley,’ and Brookford, where Great-Aunt Brenda lived.

As a successful playwright, Mark continues to have his plays for children such as ‘Cinderella’s Sisters’ and ‘The Love for Three Oranges’ performed worldwide.

You can get copies of Mark’s first book of short stories direct from Black Pear Press here:
