What Am I Doing


My second poetry collection, 'From Secrets Corner', has been published by The Garlic Press, with readings and events planned through the year. 

On Sunday 26th May I'll be sharing poems from the book at The Seagull Theatre in Pakefield. 'An Evening with Dean Parkin' will also include, 'Jeremy Day', a poem/drama for three voices about the loss of a friend in childhood, when I'll be joined by professional actors Sally-Ann Burnett and Hilary Greatorex. Plus a special screening of Little Cote (2023), the short film I co-created with Nathan Berry Dean about the lives of Ronnie and Val Bennett on their Carlton Colville farm.

Both series of 'High Street Histories' are now available on YouTube. These are picture podcasts I've created with historian Ivan Bunn exploring Lowestoft's High Street and south part of the town. Using rare archive photos alongside modern views, these short films travel back in time to unpick the stories of the town's streets, houses and shops.
