Matthew Caley

Matthew Caley’s debut collection Thirst (Slow Dancer, 1999) was nominated for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. This was followed by The Scene of My Former Triumph (Wrecking Ball, 2005), Apparently (Bloodaxe, 2010) and Caley’s ‘lost collection’ Professor Glass (Donut, 2011). He's read in venues from the National Portrait Gallery to Wayne-Holloway Smith's salon, from the Novi Sad International Poetry Festival to Prague's Alchemy, from the Globe Theatre to the Morden Tower in Newcastle, as well as at many festivals and on BBC Radio 3's The Verb. His fifth collection Rake was published by Bloodaxe in February 2016.
