Born in London in 1971, Adam Horovitz moved with his parents to Stroud, Gloucestershire the same year. He has been active as a poet since the 1990s but has been writing since childhood. He is as interested in the presentation of poetry as he is in the writing of it. His debut collection, Turning, was published by Headland in 2011. He was awarded a Hawthornden Fellowship in 2012 and released A Thousand Laurie Lees, which draws on memoir, myth and literature inspired by Cider with Rosie country in 2014. He was one of the Versopolis poets, chosen by Ledbury Poetry Festival, in 2015 and released Little Metropolis, a CD of poetry and music, the same year. He is the current Herefordshire poet-in-residence.

“Adam Horovitz writes poems of great beauty and truth; poems which are earned through experience, suffering and love and deployed in a physical language of scrupulous integrity. He is the real deal.”
Carol Ann Duffy
