Andy Jackson is a Salford-born poet who has lived in Scotland for 25 years. He says his work ‘is mainly drawn from the sweepings-up on the poetry floor, focusing as it does on blood transfusions, airports, fingerprinters, dentists and dogging. Andy also runs web-based poetry projects including Otwituaries, New Boots and Pantisocracies (with W N Herbert) and Scotia Extremis (with Brian Johnstone). He has authored two collections, A Beginner’s Guide To Cheating (Red Squirrel Press) and edited several volumes of poetry inspired by film and television
‘.. alive with possibility and excitement’ Ian McMillan
‘rich in narrative whilst also managing to remain accessible…demonstrates wit, a healthy cynicism and perhaps a hint of sadness’ Dundee University Review of the Arts
