Beatnpress are thrilled to have Christian Scully -an exciting young poet – include his fantastic poetry chap book Dayrider, as one of our exciting new publications this summer.
To get an idea of why Beatnpress are excited to publish a new edition of Dayrider by Christian Scully:
‘You’re like the M Night Shyamalan of poetry, relatable then come in with the kicker’
– Matt Tancock BBC Radio Devon
Bean13poetry aka Christian Scully is the self proclaimed bus stop bard, mainly penning his poems on public transport as he commutes to and from work across the English Riviera.
Bean first started writing in 2019 and was the first performer for BBC Radio Devons Upload show after submitting some poems on a whim.
Spurred on, Beans mixes his passion for writing and music to create lyrical poems about everyday life in the small sleepy fishing town of Brixham as well as life growing up in his hometown of Birmingham.
During the pandemic, Bean was published in various international anthologies and performed at several online slam events.
Released into the world post-covid and no stranger to the stage, Bean now tries to fuse music and poetry during his performances as well as performing with Cornish indie-electro band Ruinarte.
Bean is currently working on a spoken word EP with the good folks at Morvil Studios Bodmin, which he hopes to release in late 2022 and his debut collection Dayrider is available via his instagram @bean13poetry
‘…observational, reflective poetry that elevates the everyday through the context of coastal life in England… finding the magic in the mundane’ -The Calliope Script Publishing commenting on Dayrider Chapbook Collection
The book will be available from early June.
Along with Dayrider, Beatnpress will be publishing Woodview by Robert Garnham, and The Forgotten Whisper On The Wind by Jason Disley.
These three books are great examples of the diverse nature of Beatnpress and will no doubt be enjoyed greatly by everyone who reads them.
Every chapter is a new adventure. Check out the other books we have available at http://www.beatnpress.co.uk.
