Tim Turnbull has been performing his poetry, at home and abroad, for over twenty years. His first full collection, Stranded in Sub-Atomica, was published by Donut Press on November 11th 2005. He has created stage shows, toured with slam teams, published in numerous anthologies and magazines and tutored at all levels. In 2015 his poem Ode on a Grayson Perry Urn, included in the Forward anthology Poems of the Decade, was among those chosen as set texts for Pearson Edexcel's A level.

He is currently working on a new collection of poetry (Avanti!), has recently completed a novel, The Adventures of Kunstlicht in the Netherworld, and has a collection of supernatural tales due from Red Squirrel Press later this year.

He also paints – mostly portraits of poets – and produces digital art which he distributes somewhat haphazardly through the medium of Twitter. Please feel free to follow:

Turnbull is an experienced tutor and is available for workshops in writing and performance. Funding assistance for performance or workshops in Scotland is available through the Live Literature Scotland scheme.
