Peter Bennet lived for over thirty years near the Wanney Crags in Northumberland, in a remote cottage associated with James Armstrong, author of Wild Hills o’ Wannys. He now lives in Whitley Bay. His Bloodaxe retrospective, Border (2013), contains work from books including Goblin Lawn (2005), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, The Glass Swarm (2008), a Poetry Book Society Choice which was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize, and The Game of Bear (2011), all published by Flambard Press, and features his four major sequences, The Long Pack, Jigger Nods, Folly Wood and Bobby Bendick’s Ride, as well as a selection of new poems. His seventh collection, Mischief, was published by Bloodaxe in 2018. He has also published several pamphlets, including collaborations with the artist Birtley Aris.
