Meet the Poet
Christopher Hopkins grew up on a council estate in Neath, South Wales in the 70’s. This fractured landscape of machines and mountains and the underlying ‘Hiraeth’ of welsh life has developed his unique voice. He currently resides in Canterbury and works for NHS cancer services. Christopher has had poems published in Backlash Press, The Journal (formally the Contemporary Anglo – Scandinavian poetry), Rust & Moth, The Journal, Harbinger Asylum, Scarlet Leaf Review, Anti-Heroin Chic, Tuck Magazine, Dissident Voice magazine, Poetry Superhighway, Duane's PoeTree, Outlaw Poetry and the online literary journal 1947. Christopher’s spoken word poetry has also been featured in a podcast of Golden Walkmen Magazine. Two of his early e-book pamphlets "Imagination Is My Gun" and "Exit From A Moving Car" are available on Amazon. Read.
