Thomas A Clark lives in the East Neuk of Fife. His poetry has been consistently attentive to form and to the experience of walking in the lonely landscapes of the Highlands and Islands. Numerous small publications from his own Moschatel Press explore the structure of the book as imaginative space. His most recent collections are The Path To The Sea (Arc, 2005) and The Hundred Thousand Places (Carcanet, 2008). In an extension of some of the formal devices of poetry, Thomas A Clark's work often appears as site-specific installations or interventions in galleries, public spaces or in the landscape.
