Dan Wyke Scattering Ashes - Waterloo Sampler No. 3 (2004)


ISBN 1-902731-28-X


Out of Print

Wyke's tightly-wrought poems coil deadpan to their magical shifts where such a flare of words illuminates the journey.
Simon Jenner

Dan Wyke's poems - like 'Deer' and 'At Rodmell' - are what I read The Rialto for. A full volume is as oveerdue as any poet now writing
Amanda Sewell

'In the Dark' is a tense, primed piece, strikingly focused and unforced - a good example of Dan Wyke at his best.

Alan Morrison


Dan Wyke was born in 1973 and grew up in Cranleigh, Surrey. He spent two years living in Verona and Rome before returning to London to study English at Queen Mary and Westfield. He moved to Brighton in 1996 where he completed an MA in twentieth-century poetry at the University of Sussex. Since then he has divided his time between writing and working part-time.

More recently he retrained as a person-centred counsellor. His poetry has appeared in a wide range of publications, including Oxford Poetry, Thumbscrew, The Rialto, The London Magazine, the Spectator and the Times Literary Supplement. 

He received an Eric Gregory Award in 1999. A pamphlet, Scattering Ashes, was published by Waterloo Press in 2004.

He currently lives in Brighton with his wife and daughter, where he works as a counsellor and manages a rehabilitation project for Age Concern.
