Here are the links to other poets, creative writing educators and the publishers who have published me since 1979. You can explore their sites where there is an immense range of original contemporary poetry, rediscoveries of neglected poets, translation of poets into English, literary criticism, creative writing ideas and much more.

Franz Andres Morrissey

Franz's genuinely original web-site is for teachers of creative writing in any discipline, a practical polemic for humanising university teaching and it's also useful for the practising writer

Andy Brown

Go and see what the charismatic Andy Brown is doing now!

Norm Sibum's website

A great American poet. If he'd lived in late republican Rome someone would have assassinated him out of jealousy.



Britain's leading poetry publisher of contemporary poetry in the English language

Arc Publications

One of the best small publishers of poetry in Britain

Lively e-zine of very new and very good poetry, short fiction and criticism

Shearsman Books

A remarkable wide range of poetry in the English language. Shearsman Books connects mainstream contemporary poetry with more adventurous poets who explore different ways of practising the art. Everybody should buy at least a couple of Shearsman books every year.


I first published in Stand in 1973 and am still publishing in a magazine founded by a great and unique poet, Jon Silkin. It is now sustained by Elaine and Jon Glover. There are always poems, fiction and other other prose that I want to read over and over again.


A magazine whose editors have an open-minded approach to style and to poetry whose purpose is to sustain the language. Each issue is packed with poems and prose whose quality is remarkable.
