I resist attaching labels to myself. Am I a poet? I hope so but how can I be sure? I would rather describe myself simply as someone who loves language, and who tries to make various things with it – poems, chiefly, but also essays, plays, translation, occasional fiction and journalistic odds and ends. Poetry can sometimes bring these different genres interestingly together.

On the website you can find out what I have been working on Poetry & Fiction, Criticism, Translation & Editing, Teaching & Drama, Festivals & Prizes
