Poet and PhD student presents Radio 4 programme


A PhD student at the University of South Wales and one of Wales’s leading poets is set to add to the list of radio shows he’s presented.

Having already written and presented a number of arts programmes for Radio Wales, Radio 3 and Radio 4, Paul Henry is currently working on ‘The Death of the Spiv’, an idea he developed for Radio 4’s Archive Hour, which he’ll present on Saturday 22nd February at 8pm.

Best known for his poetry, Paul is a Fellow of the Welsh Academy and the author of nine collections of verse. His latest book, The Brittle Sea, has recently been reprinted by Seren in the UK and by Dronequill in India. Paul is delighted to be following a part-time PhD by publication, under the supervision of fellow poet and award-winning USW academic Philip Gross.

Originally a songwriter, Paul has read and performed his work at literary festivals across Europe, Asia and the USA. He has also lectured at the University and is a popular Creative Writing tutor, leading courses at writers’ centres in the UK and France.
