The Where and When
Malcolm Carson was born in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire. He moved to Belfast with his family before returning to Lincolnshire, becoming an auctioneer and then a farm labourer. He studied English at Nottingham University, and then taught in colleges and universities. He now lives in Carlisle, Cumbria. ‘The Where and When’ is his fourth collection from Shoestring after ‘Breccia’ (2006), ‘Rangi Changi and other poems’ (2011), and ‘Route Choice’ (2016), as well as a pamphlet, ‘Cleethorpes Comes to Paris’ (2014).
“Malcolm Carson’s poetry is precise, observant, finely crafted. The poetry is a gathering of life, put away carefully for winter…and, like dried kindling, it is ready to burst into a vivid flame.” – Stephen Matthews, Cumberland News
