Mark Rutterford writes and performs his short stories in towns and cities across the South West. Stories with a love interest, a bit of humour, a slice of heartache and, quite often, a prop in hand.
He has read on stage, in pubs, cafes and bars, in a shopping centre, a museum and in the changing room of a Georgian Lido. When he says ‘read’ he means read, gesticulated, pleaded, declared, jumped, sung, clapped, wobbled, ting’d his triangle and blown his kazoo telling stories. If you see him live, it is obvious that the performance element of sharing his work is really important to Mark.
Mark has appeared at a variety of spoken word events including Bath Literature Festival’s ‘Voices in the City’ event, Bath Fringe Festival and the Bristol Festival of Literature. His range covers the spectrum from Bad Erotica to the Women’s Institute, calling at all points in between.
A proud member of Stokes Croft Writers who host the live lit event Talking Tales every second month in Bristol.
