Philip Gross

Philip Gross’s poetry collection The Water Table won the T.S. Eliot Prize in 2009, I Spy Pinhole Eye, with photographer Simon Denison, won Wales Book of The Year 2010, and Off Road To Everywhere won the CLPE Award for Children’s Poetry 2011. Deep Field (2011) and Later (2013) deal with ageing and language, seen through his father’s final years and deep aphasia. He has published ten novels for young people, and collaborated with artists, musicians, dancers and puppeteers. He recently collaborated with artist Valerie Coffin Price to create A Fold in the River. Another recent collaboration centred on the river Taff, with film-maker Wyn Mason, created the interactive poetry-film website Flow and Frame.
