Seth Crook taught philosophy at various universities in the US for a number of years, largely in the philosophy of mind and the theory of knowledge. Then he moved to the Isle of Mull and became devoted to poetry. As he says, he once loved the processes of reasoning that undermined ways of thinking, but now finds he also loves the processes of imagination that create them.
His poems have been widely published: in Gutter, New Writing Scotland, Poetry Scotland, The Open Mouse, Southlight, Causeway, Northwords Now, Far Off Places in Scotland, and in other UK and Irish magazines such as Magma, The Rialto, Envoi, The Interpreter’s House, The Journal, Orbis, Prole and Butcher’s Dog, SHop and Poetry Bus. He has also been published in e-zines such as Ink, Sweat and Tears, Snakeskin and Antiphon, Message in a Bottle, Streetcake, London Grip, the Lake.
