About Cameron Self

"A varied and strong talent: satiric, serious, with an eye for the bizarre."

Craig Raine (ex Poetry Editor Faber and Faber)

"Cameron Self isn't afraid to say just one thing at a time, clearly and simply. Paradoxically, he manages to say more than those poets who try to say it all at once."

Jackie Master (City Wise)

"Self has beautifully fused the landscape of Norfolk with the people of Norfolk."

Helen Alexander

"...invaluable website for all lovers of poetry and place"

Dr Jeremy Noel-Tod

"Good stuff from a versatile poet."

Peter Howard

'......his huge collection of photographs portray an empathy with place, beauty and facts in his
native Norfolk.'

St Andrew's Church, Framingham Earl

From 1980-1983 I studied for a BA in Geography at Hull University - at a time when Philip Larkin was still working in the library. After completing my degree, I went on to take an MA in Creative Writing at Lancaster University. I have had poetry published in the Faber Book of Blue Verse, Poetry Review (x3), The Rialto (x2), Iron, Outposts Poetry Quarterly (x2), City of Stories (Norwich) and the Eastern Daily Press. My first collection of poems Gedney Drove End was shortlisted for the 2010 East Anglian Book Awards.

I have taught creative writing for Norfolk Adult Education, Norwich City Council, Broadland Housing Group and H.M.P. Norwich.

My photographs have appeared in the Royal Geographical Society BFTA Exhibition 2010, The Medieval Churches of the City of Norwich, Paranormal Magazine, Bridewell Museum History Wall, Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Service Newsletter, Norwich Magazine, Camper Love, Fine City Magazine, Nimmo Twins Show, Norwich Evening News, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex County Council Guide for Chinese Visitors and the GET Careers Guide.
