Graham Fulton

Graham Fulton was born in Hampton in England but moved with his family to Paisley in the early 1960s. After school he went to art college, played drums in a band, ran a few marathons and travelled widely. He’s been a poet, publisher and live performer for over 30 years since first attending Tom Leonard’s writers’ group in Paisley Library and was co-founder of the Itinerant Poets group who put together the influential Tower of Babble pamphlet in 1987 when almost nothing else of that kind was being published in Scotland at the time. In the 1990s he was one of the editors of West Coast Magazine and was joint-winner of the Scotia Bar First of May Poetry Prize. His work has appeared in numerous magazines, anthologies, newspapers and online journals including Ambit, Stand, The North and The Edinburgh Review. Glitches of Mortality is his sixteenth full-length collection. He’s also had over fifteen pamphlets published, many of which combine poetry, photography and illustration. His work has been translated into several languages including French, Spanish and Romanian, and his first non-poetry book The Paisley Civil War, about the town of Paisley’s connections with the American Civil War, was published in 2018. He still lives in Paisley with his wife, the painter Helen Nathaniel-Fulton. When he’s not writing poetry he loves walking, reading, watching old movies and going to Kilmartin in Argyll.
