Born in Cuckfield in 1959, Simon Jenner was educated at Leeds, then Cambridge where his PhD was Dreaming Fires: Oxford Poetry of the 1940s. His debut volumes of poetry were two parallel English/German texts, From Head to Foot, and Player-Time. He won a South-East Arts Bursary in 1999, was recipient of two major Royal Literary Fund grants in 2003 and 2006 and BBC commissions between 1999 and 2003.

He has been Director of Survivors’ Poetry since 2003 and, from 2008-10, was a Royal Literary Fund Fellow: first, at the University of East London, then at Chichester University. His first volume for Waterloo Press was About Bloody Time. His latest volume Pessoa: A Vision (Perdika) was launched at the Portuguese Embassy in June 2010 while he was Poet in the City. This organisation also appointed him Writer in Residence at Hackney Council Archives in 2011.

He is currently writing a biography of 1890s poet Lionel Johnson. A third Waterloo volume is forthcoming in 2012.
