Meet the Poet
Paul Mortimer was born in North Wales and now lives in Devon, UK. His debut collection, Fault Line, was published in 2016 by Lapwing Press, and was nominated for the Seamus Heaney Centre Prize for Best First Collection. The book also inspired a complete art exhibition with four artists producing more than 40 works based on the poems. The exhibition toured numerous venues throughout 2016. Paul is a regular performer on the South West circuit having headlined at several events including Exeter and Torquay and last November he staged a one-man hour long poetry show at the Taunton Literary Festival. He has also appeared at several other literary festivals and has been signed up for this year’s prestigious Teignmouth Poetry Festival. Read.
