Guest Poet: Jeremy Young
Jeremy Young's poetry reflects many aspects of life: scientific, spiritual, erudite and classical, all with an erotic undertone. His poems have appeared recently in Acumen, The Interpreter's House, The Frogmore Papers, Orbis, The New Writer and HQ, and also in anthologies, Ready-Salted Poets (Bradford on Avon Poetry Workshop, 2011), The Listening Walk (Bath Poetry Cafe, 2013), and The Book of Love and Loss (Belgrave Press, October 2014). His pamphlet The Wind's Embrace was published last summer as Acumen Occasional Pamphlet No 24. Jeremy read Theology at Christ's College, Cambridge and Pastoral Theology at Heythrop College London. He is an Anglican priest, and lives with his wife in Tellisford, near Bradford on Avon.
