About Me:


My name's Mark. I'm a writer, performer and educator based in Peterborough. I spend most of my time writing poems, stories and live shows that tour all around the world. I've just finished developing a documentary for Red Bull called 'Mark Grist Battles the World' and I've been on three National tours, won two Webby awards for my online content and have produced work for The Royal Institute,  BBC Radio 1, Radio 1 Xtra, Channel 4, Film 4, Red Bull, The National Maritime Museum and Google. When I'm not writing, touring or playing board games I like making  poetry and educational vids for my Youtube channel (which you can find here).

I really hope you enjoy looking around the website. Feel free to get in touch - I'm always keen to help out with any commissions/projects you're working on; no job is too big or too small and I love visiting schools when I can. Why not kick your visit off by checking out a video? Here's a poem about oranges that I wrote recently for Young Writers.
