Iain Douglas Kemp lives and works in Almería, Andalucía, Southern Spain. He has been writing for over 30 years. He considers himself a Poet first and a teacher second. His influences include Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Wes Magee and Stevie Smith and twenty thousand song titles. Publishing credits include a weekly poem in “The Reader”, free English language newspaper for the Almería region, regular contributions to two local websites and podcast readings here on www.almerimarlife.com. In May 2010 the poem Peregrine was recorded for podcast on the ‘Born Free’ Web site by Virginia McKenna, the first time this has been done other than for the poet in residence! You can check that out here.
The short poem “visual echoes” was published by Barbara Subraman/Gypsy Art Show in the visual poetry/music collaborative work “GAZE” in January 2010. He is a member of the on-line poetry group “The Baker’s Dozen” with whom he writes daily in between his busy schedule as a teacher of English as a foreign language. He also contributes regularly to Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer & Big Tent Poetry
