ABOUT OUR JUDGE FELIX
Felix Hodcroft is a writer and performer based here in Scarborough. He has judged the Tramway poetry competition since 2018.
He is renowned for his passionate, animated style of spoken-word performance, particularly as one half of ‘The Hull to Scarborough Line’, a double-act with fellow Valley Press author Sue Wilsea.
He is the author of Life After Life After Death (2010), a collection of poetry, and Lives of Lilo (2012), a children’s novel with adult appeal, both published by Valley Press. In 2014 he edited the anthology A Pocketful of Windows, sixty-six poems by writers from North and East Yorkshire.
