Chris Powici

Chris Powici’s poems range from the shed door to the back of beyond, from a rain-swept railway station to a graveyard on Skye. Along the way he writes about otters, cave paintings, moorland rivers, bird cries and abandoned boats, in search of those moments when the human and the wild rub up against one another and we find ourselves suddenly, mysteriously at home on this ‘good, wet earth’. Chris Powici lives in rural Perthshire, teaches creative writing for the Open University and The University of Stirling, and edits the literary magazine Northwords Now. His most recent poetry collection is This Weight of Light published by Red Squirrel Press in 2015.
