Social Media & Publicity

Adam Lowe is a writer and publisher from Leeds, who now lives and works in Manchester.

He has been active as a published writer, journalist and facilitator since at least 2002, when he started writing poetry for his sixth form magazine and ran the creative writing workshop in his free time. He runs events, competitions and magazines, and is a keen advocate for new writing. His background in journalism and social media makes him well placed to support Peepal Tree Press in its promotional and marketing efforts.

In 2012, his pamphlet Precocious (Dog Horn Publishing) was a reader nomination for the Guardian First Book Prize, and his poetry has featured in The Guardian Poem of the Week, Ten: The New Wave (Bloodaxe) and Best British Poetry 2015 (Salt Publishing).

In 2014, he toured his solo show, 'Ecstasies', which began at Contact. He was also made LGBT History Month Poet Laureate, a title he currently retains.

In 2019, his poem 'Bone Railroad' was Poem of the Week in the Yorkshire Times.
