Naomi Foyle

Naomi Foyle was born in London, England, grew up in Hong Kong, Liverpool and Saskatchewan, and now lives in Brighton a short walk from the sea. Originally trained in theatre, Naomi has collaborated with artists, musicians and filmmakers on award-winning projects including the videopoem Good Definition (2004) and the Canadian opera Hush (1990). Her international readings include appearances at The Cuisle Festival in Limerick and the 2018 Babylon Festival for International Cultures and Arts, Iraq.

She brings both literary and performance skills to her debut collection The Night Pavilion — a scintillating cabaret of ballads, riddling lyric verse, and erotic prose-poetry, and an Autumn 2008 Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

Foyle is also the author of The World Cup (2010), and several pamphlets, including Red Hot & Bothered (Lansdowne Press, Hove, 2003), which won the Apples & Snakes 2008 ‘The Book Bites Back’ competition, and two Waterloo Slims: Grace of the Gamblers: A Chantilly Chantey and No Enemy but Time, both fruits of her long-standing interest in Irish history and poetry. Her third collection, Adamantine, was published by Red Hen/Pighog Press (US/UK) in 2019. Also an Associate Editor and co-translator at Waterloo Press, and a prolific Science Fiction author, Naomi teaches Creative Writing at the University of Chichester.
