The Pebble Champion New Cover.jpg

"A young man tries to find peace while navigating the troubled waters of trauma and self-discovery in The Pebble Champion by A.D. Pritchard. Laced with vivid snatches of flashback and memory, this emotionally charged novel is raw and vulnerable, but also told with the confidence of a skilled storyteller. From self-healing and grieving to sexual awakening and emotional growth, this novel fearlessly tackles delicate subjects with tenderness and valuable insight."

Window Spit New cover.jpg

"​I have to admit that Window Spit is my sort of poetry; direct, unflinching, in your face, but most of all, honest. The language is down-to-earth and Alan David Pritchard has avoided abstract imagery and oblique metaphors, presenting us with an accessible, thought-provoking, hard-hitting collection of which he can be justifiably proud. I encourage you to read Window Spit - there are some sparkling gems in there and you will not be disappointed."

Red Handed Cover 2021 front.jpg

"A fast-paced, boiling pot of a one-act play. Red-Handed showcases the playwright’s talents by pitting three schoolboys against each other, as they’re locked in a storage room by a classmate. ​Pritchard vividly stages the play with inventive demonstrations of flashbacks. Short yet tense, Red-Handed is a rare play that performs itself well through the act of reading, a testament to Pritchard’s authorial and directorial vision."

Alan David Pritchard Advancing Backwards Poetry

Advancing Backwards' ​is my first poetry collection published by Demented Poet Press in 2011.

 

Most of the poems in this collection were featured in magazines, anthologies and websites around the world. ​

In 2005, I was made Poet of the Month by the then London Poet's Letter Society, and I was invited to read at the Poets' Cafe in Covent Garden.

One of the video poems from this collection, 'Like So', was an OFFICIAL SELECTION at the 2013 Visible Verse Festival in Vancouver, Canada.

Another poem, 'Consequence',  was selected as the soundtrack for a student choreography assignment at Western Kentucky University.
