The Creative Writing Programme presents Simon Perril

Simon Perril’s poetry collections include Nitrate (Salt) and Archilochus on the Moon and the sequel Beneath (Shearsman). He has written widely on contemporary poetry and poetics, and edited The Salt Companion to John James (Salt). He teaches at De Montfort University, Leicester, and loves silent movies, and noisy music. And cats.

“My poetry roots go back to discovering the New American Poetry of the 50s and 60s and the “British Poetry Revival” of the 60s and 70s pretty much simultaneously, thanks to local book dealers in Cambridge, and the alternative academy that was Compendium bookshop in Camden, London.”  Simon Perril
