About the author

Mark Goodwin is a balancer, walker, climber, and stroller who speaks and writes in various ways in various places – on paper, on-line, blended with photos, in film-poems, to live audience, or through mixing his voice with field-recordings & soundscapes ... and often through collaboration with other artists. He is also a ground-aslanter, his work being included in Shearsman Book’s ground-tilting anthology The Ground Aslant – An Anthology of Radical Landscape Poetry (2011). To date (June 2017), Mark has published five full-length poetry collections and six chapbooks with various English poetry houses. His latest, and fifth title with Shearsman, is All Space Away and In.

He continues to explore on foot or with feet-&-hands English, Welsh, Scottish mountains, urban-rimlands, crags, coastlands, individual trees of various species, riverbanks, derelict buildings, lakeshores, woodlands, various fence-rails, suspended-narrow-ways and ... moors ...

Mark was born in 1969, and grew up on a farm in South Leicestershire. For the past sixteen years or so he has lived on a narrow-boat, just off the river Soar, and just north of Leicester.
