The Setup - Steve Clarkson

As part of an ongoing series where we ask industry professionals what they use to get the job done, we speak to Steve, Senior Writer at digital marketing agency Stickyeyes.

Steve's outdoor hut in Argenta, British Columbia

Who are you, and what do you do?

I’m a senior writer at digital marketing agency Stickyeyes. In my spare time I write poetry and prose, do talks and spoken word stuff, and run a guerrilla publishing project called #foundfiction – where we leave anonymous short stories in envelopes marked ‘read me’ around public spaces.

What hardware do you use?

Pen and paper for scribbling down a first draft, then a laptop for typing it up in best. And a phone for making notes of potentially significant things I see, hear and recall when I’m on the move.

And what software?

Microsoft Word, PowerPoint now and then, and the Evernote app, which is perfect for note-taking.

What would be your dream setup?

I think I once had it: a chilly outdoor hut, with a mattress on the floor and a lamp above my head, in Argenta, British Columbia. It was the cosiest room ever, even with the bears outside.

One item you can't live without?

A pen – but you already knew that, didn’t you? I really can’t think of another item that feels more natural to me.

Thanks Steve!
