Welcome to my website.
I'm a poet-critic living in Liverpool, UK. I have published numerous books of poetry available from Salt, Shearsman, Knives, Forks and Spoons and Veer, as well as criticism from Liverpool University Press, Northcote House and Palgrave. Stuff appears in pamphlet and regularly in magazines too. I run a blogzine Pages.
I am Emeritus Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Edge Hill University.
I perform my poetry regularly and I am available for readings, workshops and talks.
