Author Biography

Born in 1973 in Wales, Julian Meek first began publishing poetry in the late 1990s and is the author of two pamphlet collections AMONG CHURCH RUINS (1999) and WORDS FOR THE CUCKOO MAN (2007). He has also collaborated with leading Welsh artist John Selway in providing poems to accompany Selway's Stations of the Cross sequence at the Church of St Michael in Abertillery, and a selection of these pieces was published in 2010 with the support of the Arts Council of Wales.

More recently, Meek has performed in installation readings with poet Jane Butler - again featuring his Selway-based poems - and has collaborated with musician Jon Airdrie in permitting some of his poems to be performed as songs.

A local politician as well as a poet, Julian Meek was elected Mayor of his home town of Abertyleri, Wales, in 2012. He held this post until May 2013. Upon his relinquishment of the position, he was praised not only for his work as Council chair, but also for his poetry and commitment to Welsh issues.

His writing was featured in a recent issue of Assent magazine (University of Derby), England, in an article by writer and critic Zoe Gilbert; and he is a regular reader of his work at various events.

Check out Julian's YouTube site to hear him read, also to enjoy some really cool musical adaptations of his poems by the equally cool Jon Airdrie.

His book ENTERING INTO THE MYSTERY - a work concerned with the Passion and Resurrection of Christ and the relation between spirituality and sexuality, is scheduled to appear in March 2014.
