Will was born in London and lives in Buckinghamshire. He didn’t finish his English degree, choosing instead to start an ill-fated band with his brother. He likes sports, gardening and birds and is Poet-In-Residence at Caught By The River.
He was named as one of the four Faber New Poets for 2014 with his debut pamphlet, praised in the Guardian for its ‘quiet intelligence and subtle ways of seeing’.
His second pamphlet was published as part of the Clutag Press 5 Poems series in early 2016, and Germ Songs, a series of poems illustrated by Jess White, was published by Rough Trade Books in 2019. Also in 2019, he released the album Chalk Hill Blue, a collaborative work with the composer Hannah Peel, which set a number of his poems to her music.
Will's debut full collection, Country Music, will be published by Offord Road Books in 2020.
