BEAUTIFUL INSPIRING WORDSMITHERY

Toby Thompson is a writer and performer of thoughts and feelings.  Not just his own, but somehow yours too.  His poetry displays his delight in life’s uncertainties and absurdities and his uniquely rhythmic and musical style is lyrical, beguiling, playful and poignant.

"...uniquely musical poetry, performed with passion, wit and charm"
