His work has been published in The Guardian, The Irish Examiner, The Echo Room, Poetry South East and azul, amongst others, as well as online. He was the first non-Irish editor of The Stony Thursday Book, an annual anthology of contemporary poetry published in Limerick.

John is perhaps best known as his poetic alter ego, Shedman, ( the original itinerant poet in a shed who has appeared at numerous festivals and events. As Shedman his commissioned work has ranged from poems engraved into the windows of a learning centre on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, to major hospital projects with artist Sue Ridge, to a poem about the Forest Ridge for the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, emulating Michael Drayton’s alexandrines in his Poly-Olbion.
