Philip Gross lives in South Wales and has published some twenty collections of poetry, most recently Between The Islands (Bloodaxe, 2020). The Water Table won the British T.S.Eliot Prize 2009, and Love Songs of Carbon the Roland Mathias Award (Wales Book of The Year) 2016. He is a keen collaborator, e.g. with artist Valerie Coffin Price on A Fold In The River (Seren, 2015), with Australian poet-artist Jenny Pollak on Shadowplay (Flarestack, 2018) and with scientists from the National Museum of Wales on a science-based poetry collection for young people, Dark Sky Park (Otter-Barry Books, 2018). A Part of the Main – a conversation in poems between Philip Gross and Lesley Saunders on themes of migration, exile, loss of love or home or language – appeared from Mulfran in 2019. Forthcoming projects include Troeon/Turnings, a book of ‘translaboration’ – mutual translations/responses between him and Welsh language poet Cyril Jones.   www.philipgross.co.uk
