StaringattheEclipseMatthew Welton takes a playful approach to language, writing ‘musical, maddening, irresistible poems’ (Guardian). The Number Poems (Carcanet) is his third collection. Matthew teaches Creative Writing at the University of Nottingham.

Henry Normal’s Staring Directly at the Eclipse (Five Leaves) marks his return to poetry after writing and producing television shows with his company Baby Cow. He has been called ‘the Alan Bennett of poetry’ (Scotsman).

Ruth Fainlight has published twelve collections, including New and Collected Poems (Bloodaxe). Her poetry is ‘sensuous and observant’ (TLS). Ruth has received a Cholmondeley Award, and is an honorary lecturer at the University of Nottingham.
