Mike Watts was born in an area of Kingston-upon-Hull (UK) better known for its 'downs' than its 'ups', which hasn't stopped him from becoming one of the leading, and most admired, poets and writers assembled around the vibrant champion of all things artistic in the land once ruled over by the great British poet, Philip Larkin - ThisisUll (http://www.thisisull.com).
"Champion", as they say up there, and he is, delivering lines observed through an eye which is notably humane, witty and sharp. He is also the co-founder and co-host of 'Write to Speak', Yorkshire's only theatre-based spoken word / poetry event.
