Phil Callaghan


Phil Callaghan has been writing since 2007.

His work explores the marginal places where cycles commence and complete; where the natural and the man-made collide and mutate; where the real and the imaginary intertwine and interchange; where perception and language transform the familiar and the often-overlooked; where the remarkable unfolds and the world passes by…

Poems have been published in magazines and anthologies such as Essence, The Dawntreader, Decanto and Sarasvati, and a poetic response to a piece of work entitled Birch Tattoo by artist Cathy Stocker appears on her website. In 2013 Phil is looking to publish a first collection.

Phil lives, walks, thinks and writes in north London (and sometimes in Brighton), and also works for the mental health charity Minds Matter.
