Tim O’Leary grew up in Wiltshire and lives in London. He began his career as an archaeologist in England, Wales and Tunisia before becoming a photographer. As a poet, he has been shortlisted in competitions in England, Ireland and Italy, and won Cork’s Wild Atlantic Words in 2015. His work has appeared in Allegro, Ink Sweat and Tears, Poetry Salzburg Review and The High Window, as well as several anthologies. Manganese Tears is his first pamphlet: ‘a wallop of surprise, a skilful turn of phrase on every page’.
