Evan Symmonds studied English Literature at Cardiff University and went on to gain a PhD in Literature at the University of Essex.
Evan entered the teaching profession to share his love of literature and the craft of disciplining words in performance and on the page. Evan has taught English and drama at secondary schools and especially enjoyed directing plays and musicals, as well as leading students through the art of performing poetry.
Born in the West Midlands, Evan gained an early love for the Welsh border country and hillsides and coastlands of Scotland where his family holidayed. Evan now lives Monmouth in the Wye Valley. His love for the countryside and for literature is everywhere visible in his work.
