He has researched the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins and  is an annual participant and lecturer at the Gerard Manley Hopkins Conference in Ireland. As editor of Tandem poetry magazine, he has sought to promote the work of young writers.

The Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, describes Michael Woods' poetry as ‘concerned with texture, tenderness and the toughness of experience, with a fresh eye for the passions and eccentricities concealed behind our front doors.’
