Meet the EUOIA Collaborators: Allen Fisher

With Allen Fisher I created the poems of the Finnish poet Minna Kararkkainen for Twitters for a Lark: Poetry of the European Union of Imaginary Authors. She is a scientist-poet.

Allen Fisher is a poet, painter and art historian, lives in Hereford. He is Emeritus Professor of Poetry and Art at Manchester Metropolitan University. He has over 150 single-author publications to his name. In 2016, he published Imperfect Fit: Aesthetics, Facture and Perception from the University of Alabama, the complete poetry of Gravity as a consequence of shape and a second edition of the collected PLACE books of poetry from Reality Street Editions, and a reprint of Ideas of the culture dreamed of was published by The Literary Pocket Book.

See a part of Gravity that wasn't collected here, where it first appeared, on Pages. And my piece on Gravity here. One of many articles I've written. I write about his book Proposals here, complete with photographs of the images and text.
