Seth Crook taught philosophy at universities in the US for a number of years, largely in the philosophy of mind and the theory of knowledge. He moved to the Isle of Mull and became devoted to poetry. He once loved the processes of reasoning that undermined ways of thinking, but now loves the processes of imagination that create them. He also loves sea slugs.
His poems have been widely published: in such places as Gutter, Poetry Scotland, Causeway, Northwords Now, The Interpreter’s House, Dreich, Southlight, and in other UK and Irish magazines such as Magma, The Rialto, Poetry Salzburg Review, Pennine Platform, Channel, Butcher’s Dog. He has also been published in a wide variety of anthologies and e-zines. His concrete poetry frequently appears in Streetcake and he has a pamphlet of concrete poems “Chalked On The Path” (Dreich Press).
