It has been your great good fortune to discover the web page dedicated to the poetry of James Lynch Bridson. All of the poems that you will find on this page are written by him without help from anyone else (but with influences noted where appropriate).

James was born in London in November 2001 and now lives in Oxford with his troublesome parents, crazy brother and charming sister. He has been writing poems and stories for donkeys' years but it was only recently that he decided to share them with people outside his immediate family.

James won his first prize for poetry at Blackfriars Got Talent (January 2009).

Since 2009, James has written mostly in prose. In September 2012, James won the Michael Murpurgo Writing Competition.

His winning story was published by the Daily Telegraph, 29 September 2012

James thinks that he would eventually like to become a Fellow of Literature at Magdalen College Oxford, or perhaps the Professor of Poetry. He is compiling a portfolio of his work in order to establish his credentials for these jobs.

Above all, though, he just loves to write (and play cricket).
