Paul Henry was born in Aberystwyth in 1959 and is one of Wales's leading poets. His new & selected poems, The Brittle Sea was published October 2010. Described by the late U.A. Fanthorpe as "a poet's poet" who combines "a sense of the music of words with an endlessly inventive imagination", he came to poetry through songwriting. His work had been widely anthologised and regularly appears in journals as diverse as Poetry Wales and The TLS.
A popular creative writing tutor, he ran the Ledbury Festival's Poetry Cafe at Hereford's Courtyard theatre and is a regular tutor at Ty Newydd, Wales's national writers' centre. Mari d'Ingrid, a translation of his fifth Ingrid's Husband (Seren), recently appeared from L'Harmattan. In 2010 he presented the Inspired series of arts programmes for BBC Radio Wales.
