Andy Jackson's headshot

I am a poet with two full collections and a further eight anthologies as editor or co-editor, both in printed and web-based formats. Several of the editing projects involved large-scale co-ordination and project management involving over a hundred poets over many months. Some of these anthologies have led to a string of innovative and engaging live events across the UK to present the work of collaborating poets.

I also have considerable experience in facilitating writers through workshops and other similar events. I particularly enjoy organising and participating in live presentation of poetry to mixed audiences, and working to connect poets through collaborative projects.
