Janey Macken Street is the creative writing outlet of Camillus John. Bored and braised in Dublin, he has been writing fiction since seeing his first giant electronic frog with pink lips at the age of six, shortly after Lenny, the dog that can lick your mind out, licked his mind out.

His fictionbook Groin Frosties With Jazzy Hand – The Pervert’s Guide To Modern Fiction and his poembook Why The Privileged Need to Read Literature are now available to buy on Amazon. He also put together a collection of Ballyer fiction called The Flying Superhero Clothes Horse 2018.  This is also still available to buy on Amazon.


Janey Macken Street is in deep recession yet its cultural exuberance continues to sail through the air willy-nilly like a flicked elastic-band into the groin of austerity.

If you’d like to find out about any of the above, then please read on MacDuff. But only if you want to, that is. No pressure.  As the bishop said to the altar boy.
