About the Author

Stewart Henderson is a poet, broadcaster and songwriter. The Sunday Times described his children's poetry as 'essential reading'. He presented 'Questions Questions' for ten years for BBC Radio 4, and has originated and presented many social history documentaries for BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 2, and BBC World Service. Stewart has also presented, and contributed to some of the BBC Radio 4's 'crown jewels' such as From Our Own Correspondent, Pick Of The Week, Something Understood, Broadcasting House, Saturday Live, PM, iPM and Four Thought. His documentary,'The Holy Fire', made on location in Israel, won the Jerusalem Radio Award for Best Feature. Stewart also received a Sony Radio Award nomination for his documentary, 'From Hairnets To Goalnets', about the first ever women's football team formed during the First World War - The Dick, Kerr Ladies. As a songwriter, Bob Harris of BBC Radio 2, praised the "lyrical intelligence" of Stewart's lyrics.


"Winnie-the-Pooh never explains what he means by 'the noise-you-make-before-beginning-a-piece-of-poetry'. But in this glorious gallimaufry Stewart Henderson allows us an insight into 'the noise-the-poet-makes-before-writing-one'. A Poet's Notebook gives us a glimpse inside the mind and the muse of the poet, the rhapsodic rattlebag from which each individual poem coalesces out of chaos." - Paul Vallely, former executive editor of The Independent on Sunday and author of bestselling biography, Pope Francis: Untying The Knots
"What Michael Morpurgo has done for children's fiction, Henderson has done for poetry"- Melanie Carroll, The Church Times
"Stewart has the capacity to engage naturally and touch deeply- He makes it look effortless"- Christine Morgan, Head of Radio, BBC Religion and Ethics
"He understands the packed power of words; the importance of their use and measure"- Gillian Reynolds, radio critic, The Sunday Times
"Essential reading" - The Sunday Times
