David Tilley is a writer and visual artist inspired by inner and outer landscapes. Traditionally his writing has been of the poetry of place and meditation. More recently he has been driven by questions related to the reader as the bringer of meaning to the poetic work and the part played by juxtaposition and repetition in the creation and invention of new meaning. He has, over the last few years, been experimenting with various forms of multiple authorship and has developed a strong belief in working at the level of the sentence. David has been published in Rag & Bone, HazMat Review, The Golden Lantern, World Haiku Review, Contemporary Haibun Online, and Modern Haiku.
