    Mitchell, Adrian

    Adrian Mitchell (1932 –2008) was a prolific poet, novelist, journalist and playwright. He completed his National Service in the RAF, which he said confirmed his natural pacifism and was firmly associated with left-wing politics in his writings and in editorial roles.  He wrote poetry for children as well as adults, and a collection of his poetry, Tell Me Lies: Poems 2005 – 2008 was published posthumously in 2009.
