Meet the EUOIA Collaborators: Jeff Hilson

With Jeff Hilson I created the Hungarian poems of Josef Ratsky for Twitters for a Lark: Poetry of the European Union of Imaginary Authors. You can read more about Ratsky here.

Jeff Hilson wrote stretchers (Reality Street 2006), Bird bird (Landfill 2009) and In The Assarts (Veer 2010). He also edited The Reality Street Book of Sonnets (Reality Street 2008), which I responded to here (before writing about it in The Meaning of Form here). Two new books, Latanoprost Variations and Organ Music, are finished. He runs Xing the Line reading series in London and teaches Creative Writing at the University of Roehampton.

He appeared by video link (actually via tape) at the EUOIA Other Room night in Manchester in August 2017. Details here:
