Stuarts work focuses on the impact of trauma, both on the individual and the family unit, and encourages survivors (men in particular) to have more emotional openness which might otherwise be suppressed through norms/expectations of ‘masculinity’. He has also been known to write the odd cat poem. You can find him reading at online poetry events, including appearances at the Cheltenham Poetry Festival (May 26th 2021)
