Ross Cogan:

I studied philosophy at university, gaining a Ph.D. from Bristol, and
currently work as a writer, researcher and editor. My first collection,
'Stalin’s Desk', was published in 2005 by Oversteps Books, while my second,
'The Book I Never Wrote', appeared in 2012 with the same publisher. I am
also currently Creative Director of the Cheltenham Poetry Festival.

In 1999 I won an Eric Gregory Award. I have won the Exeter Poetry Prize, the
Frogmore Poetry Prize, the Staple Open Poetry Competition, and the Crabbe
Memorial Prize and have been a runner up in the Frogmore, Staple and Crabbe
Memorial Competitions, as well as the Poetry London, Cardiff International,
Ver Poets and Salisbury Kick Start Poets Competitions.

My poetry has been published in a number of magazines including PN Review,
The Rialto, Poetry London, Acumen, Stand, Orbis, New Welsh Review, The
Interpreter’s House, The Frogmore Papers, Smiths Knoll, Envoi, Staple, The
Swansea Review, Poetry Nottingham International, Oxford Poetry, Third Way,
Prop and the May Anthologies. A poem was also selected for 'Lung Jazz: Young
British Poets for Oxfam', forthcoming from Cinnamon Press.
