Author Information

Simon Barraclough won the poetry section of the London Writers' Prize in 2000 and is the author of the collections Los Alamos Mon Amour (Salt 2008) and Bonjour Tetris (Penned in the Margins 2010). He is also the editor of the multi-poet homage to Hitchcock's seminal thriller, Psycho Poetica (Sidekick Books 2012) and is co-author (along with Chris McCabe and Isobel Dixon) of The Debris Field: Salvaging the Titanic in Word, Sound and Image (Sidekick Books 2013). Luke Kennard is a poet, critic, dramatist and pugilist. He is compassionate, but prone to anxiety and bleak introspection. Many have called him polite and quite funny, but add that he suffers from a tendency towards constant nervous laughter and an apparently involuntary rictus of disdain. His poetry and criticism have appeared in Stride Magazine, Sentence, Echo:Location, The Tall Lighthouse Review, Reactions 4, Orbis, 14 Magazine, The Flying Post, Exultations & Difficulties. He won an Eric Gregory Award in 2005 and was shortlisted for Best Collection in the 2007 Forward Poetry Prizes. He is quite tall. Chris McCabe was born in Liverpool in 1977. His poetry has featured in a number of magazines including Magma and Poetry Review. His first collection The Hutton Inquiry was published in 2005. He has discussed and read his poetry on BBC World Service, featured a poem on the Oxfam CD Lifelines and performs his work regularly. He currently works as Joint Librarian of The Poetry Library and lives in Dagenham with his wife and son.
