    Patrick Errington is a academic, poet, and translator. A George Buchanan Doctoral Scholar at the University of St Andrews, supervised by Profs John Burnside and Don Paterson, his research explores how creative response composition (homage, imitation, translation) might provide an important  addition to critique as a means of understanding and engaging with poetry.  Patrick’s own poems has been widely published, appearing in Best New Poets, The Cincinnati Review, Boston Review, Oxford Poetry, and elsewhere, and have  won numerous prizes, including the Wigtown, The London Magazine,  the Flambard, and The National Poetry Competitions. His pamphlet, Glean,  was recently published by ignition press, and his French translation of PJ  Harvey’s The Hollow of the Hand was published in 2017 by Éditions l’Âge  d’Homme.
