Hello, and welcome to my website!

Here you will find details of my publications, principally poetry but also fiction and academic criticism.

I will also post details of forthcoming publications, readings and performances; and of course I will also provide a way of buying any of my work should you wish to.

 I’m really pleased to say that my latest poetry pamphlet, Those Other Fields, is now published. There was supposed to be a launch in London in April, but of course because of lockdown this has been postponed; we hope it may take place later in the year. You can buy the book by going to the website of Palewell Press’s online bookstore at palewellpress.co.uk.

 In the meantime, there has been a virtual launch via Zoom. This has been recorded, and is available on the Audio page.

I have given recent virtual readings for the 1000 Monkeys poetry show and the Virtual Artists Forum, and have just heard that the poetry film A Dream of Ships – which you can watch on the video page – won a prize at the Zebra Poetry Film Festival in Berlin in November. It was also the first-prize-winner at the Mayflower Commemoration Festival in 2020. Another film of my work – ‘The Harbour-Master’s Tale’ – was similarly successful at the IMM Festival this year.

 My next collection, Stranger, is due for publication from Cinnamon Press later this year; I will post further details as they become available.

 If you want to contact me, the easiest way is through e-mail, at davidpunter@icloud.com
