Robin Vaughan-WilliamsRobin Vaughan-Williams ran Spoken Word Antics in Sheffield for five years, where he also presented the Antics Radio Show for Sheffield Live and developed an online poetry sound-archive.

He has a special interest in performance and collaboration among poets and other arts practitioners. This led to a series of site-specific events in the Sheffield Winter Gardens (Verbiage, 2004), Sheffield Cathedral (Demolition, 2005), and the Access Space recycled technology lab (Life 2.0, 2008).

He has also run writing workshops, produced poetry improvisations and in 2009 collaborated with the Ella Luk Music Project on a poetry-music performance Time Is Running Out! (restart your system now).

After a spell in Iceland, he now lives in Nottingham, where he works for Nottingham Writers' Studio and is involved in organising the quarterly Word of Mouth live literature night.
