Synopsis: Rowan McCabe is the original ‘door to door’ poet.

In 2016, he embarked upon a journey which has taken him all over the UK as he looks to uncover new and different people’s stories.

He knocks on doors, meets new people and finds out what makes them tick, what they love or what they hate. He’s developed a unique view on the world and carries this philosophy with him throughout all of his life.

This is his story and what he’s learned from his journey in his own words – a poem about creating poetry.
