Introduction My debut collection will be published by Eyewear Publishing in autumn 2017. I have had poems widely published, including in: the Best New British and Irish Poets 2016 (Eyewear Publishing); Fire; Ink, Sweat & Tears; Magma; Nth Position; Poetry Ireland Review; Poetry from Art (Tate Modern); and The Rialto. I was shortlisted for the Poetry School/Pighog Press Pamphlet Competition 2013. I have had two haiku collections published - The Regulars in 2006 and The Lammas Lands in 2015. I co-edit Presence haiku magazine and was joint writer/editor (with John Barlow) of Wing Beats: British Birds in Haiku (Snapshot Press, 2008). My haiku have been anthologised in - among others - the Iron Book of British Haiku, The New Haiku and Where the River Goes (both Snapshot Press), Haiku in English: the First Hundred Years (WW Norton), and, with John Barlow, I have run haiku workshops for the Essex Poetry Festival and Poetry South, presented at Haiku North America and read at New Networks for Nature symposia. I've also contributed to the Guardian's Country Diary column.
