Tom Bryan's headshot

I am a Canadian-born poet, fiction and non-fiction writer. I have lived in Scotland most of my life, and am based in the Scottish Borders. I read and perform my work and also offer workshops in short fiction and poetry. I can work with children and adults.

I am a useful resource on getting started as a writer and getting published. I am experienced as a full-time carer so have an added interest in writers as carers. I would prefer to work in the Borders but can drive and travel if required. (Photo credit: Lis Lee)
