Where are the Cloud Popper’s jagged clothes?

Where are the Cloud Popper’s jagged clothes
With which she’d guide the raindrop flows,
To water where the goodgreen grows
Around each small and tall tree’s toes?

Where goes that thief – the hijacker who
Removed the jagged clothes from view
And popped the clouds above such lands
Where Nature slept beneath its sands?

Where rained the drops that didn’t stop
But flushed the muds to covered the crops
And flooded the houses door by door
By reign of rain /  hard water lore?

The Cloud Popper sighed, his purpose gone;
His clothes of blue removed,
By elements who thought they knew
The how, the what and who.

Without a clap of thunder,
No trickle of applause,
The Popper of the planet’s clouds
Gave in to stronger laws.

His like we may not see again –
His skill being heaven sent.
Now those who wear his jagged clothes
Play in their element.

(Grant. 2020)



I drive words to work

My offer to you

Before your next audience of tens or thousands, pitch your stories to me, live, on Zoom or Skype.

Invite my mind to work on your behalf, interactively, real-time,  in a way that nobody close to you will ever do.





Print is just part of it.

As more books, articles, blogs, tweets, emails and thread comments are now written than will ever be read, the success of your writings has to come from the way you deliver words in your podcasts, vids. trailers and at live events.

You are now the main story

Whilst you are on stage, anyone in your audience can be spreading your stories globally  – sharing them as spoken live, capturing them during question time and at improvised face-to-face meetings.

So during live events, meetings, signings, interviews, talks and trade shows, your voiced words and actions need to be informative, inspiring, attention-holding and entertaining. Words which once worked for you when displayed as text, now require intonation, motioned-delivery and pace changes to match your widening audience.

My backstory

My early work with words started alongside the legendary copywriter Dave Southall, producing harder working words for a whole range of organisations including Refugee and Migrant Justice, the Council of Europe, Channel 4, Stoves, MTV, Prodrive, the National Maritime Museum.

In 1985 I co-founded TVRT studios, writing radio ads., sets for MC’s, DJ’s, musicians.

Combining my writing and visualising skills, I co-founded an interior design company, started the Little People Books imprint, joined two architectural firms, a marketing group, an educational partnership and supported a registered charity whilst managing my own company, GJA – Concept and Presentation.

My central focus is now on developing the HoBB Field Centre as a place to host friends, clients, events organisers, fellow writers, researchers and many visiting international students interested in sustainable growth, food security and global ecological balance.

I’ll design the way your words will take you forward :
