Jos Smith

Jos Smith was born in Canterbury, Kent in 1980. He lived in Liverpool and Nottingham for a time before settling in Devon where he works at the University of Exeter as a researcher. He is also the author of a critical study of the New Nature Writing and teaches and writes quite broadly on landscape and place in post-war British and Irish literature. He is currently working on a history of the arts and environmental charity Common Ground. Jos is also on the editorial panel of the online magazine The Clearing. His poetry, which has appeared in a range of UK magazines, pamphlets and anthologies, explores the imaginative possibilities of our relationship with landscape and place. He is a keen long-distance hiker and paid up member of The Cloud Appreciation Society.
