Bill Lewis was one of the near legendary Medway Poets Group along with Billy Childish, Sexton Ming, Charles Thomson and Rob Earl.
He has performed his poems in Europe, Latin America and North America and has been published in magazines, journals and anthologies all over the world. Some of his poems have been translated into Spanish and his short stories into German.
In addition, Lewis has been broadcast on television and radio on both sides of the Atlantic and has carried out readings, workshops and lectures at Literary Festivals (including the International Cambridge Poetry Festival), hospitals, prisons, schools and universities and he was the first Writer-in-Residence at the Brighton Festival (1985).
Lewis was one of the original 13 founder members of the Stuckist Movement. He has since gone on to disseminate the ideas and theories that have emerged from Remodernism.
He has exhibited his paintings in various galleries in Paris London, Berlin, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Kentucky and was featured in the 'Punk Victorian' exhibition at the Walker Gallery, Liverpool.
