Pete Green

Author: Pete Green
Pete Green lives in Sheffield and started to write poetry in 2014. Their debut pamphlet Sheffield Almanac, published by Longbarrow Press in 2017, is described by Pete as “a poem in four chapters about rivers, rain, relocation, and regeneration, exploring the industrial past and post-industrial future of my adopted home city”. In 2019 they were shortlisted for the Brotherton Poetry Prize. A second pamphlet, Hemisphere, is forthcoming from Longbarrow in 2021. As a musician and songwriter Pete fronts the indiepop band The Sweet Nothings and has released two solo albums, the more recent being We’re Never Going Home (Atomic Beat Records, 2016).
