Bio / Bibliography:

Mike Eager is a poet who values the performance of his work as highly as publishing. He toured schools and universities as part of Poetrycorp in the late '80s. In 1991 he toured Britain and Ireland with his first book, Warning. On his return he did a solo Arts Council sponsored tour of Northland and published his second book of poems, Living First Class in a Third World Country. He often links poems as narrative sequences, including chant and song for variation of rhythm and emotion.

Mike is a great poet who really shines at performance time. If you catch him, do get involved so he can work off you as well as his material, great fun!
