I was saddened to learn of the death of my friend and fellow Essex poet Alex Smith. Alex was a fine poet and poetry critic, his poems appeared in Acumen, Agenda, Brittlestar, Poetry Review, Stand and The London Review of Books, to name but a few. He wrote reviews for many magazines including Acumen & Poetry Review.
He had five volumes of poetry published, The Appetites of Morning, the Languor of Afternoons (1996 Salzburg University), Kayserling (1997 Overstep Books), Histories (with Anne Born, 1998 Salzburg University), Ocean Myths (1999 Ino Press) and his most recent Venetian Blue (2010 dark age press).
We used to workshop poems in a group that met bi-monthly & in between we would email poems to each other, he was always generous with his time and sharp with his comments.
