Curiosity is a means of declaring our allegiance to the human fold Alberto Manguel
Simon Parker is a London based writer, performer and teacher.
His work has been published in The Ekphrastic Review and performed at the Lyric Hammersmith Studio, Hackney Empire Studio, The Place, Somerset House, Half Moon Theatre, Southbank Centre, the Totally Thames Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Simon is an associate artist of Vocal Point Theatre, a theatre company dedicated to telling stories from those not often heard, and providing workshops for the marginalised.
He runs a creative writing group for the homeless, socially excluded and vulnerable at 240 Project. He also facilitates two reading groups for The Reader, combatting loneliness and social isolation through literature.
Simon was born in a flat in Brixton, South London, which he and his brother managed to burn down. His education came from selling fruit at Berwick Street Market, stealing books from the local library – (safely returned to their shelves from the blue Adidas sports bag he dragged into the building), and delivering beds, which were occasionally sawn in half to manage the stairs. He lives in West London and no longer steals books. His occasional stealing of a pork pie continues.
