Tony Frisby

Having left school in Waterford at 14, Tony Frisby emigrated to England a few years later where he worked as a labourer, general handyman, fruit-picker, fitter’s mate, sewage worker, waiter then cook in a London Wimpy Bar until finally gaining a toehold in the whitecollar world. Solvent at last, he eventually ‘returned’ to education in the mid-eighties finally graduating from Brunel with a Masters in Renaissance and Modern Literature before embarking on a PhD in Northern Irish Poetry. However, by now smitten by the poetic form, he abandoned his academic studies to concentrate on writing poetry rather than commenting on it. He now lives on the South Coast where he is currently working on the fifth in a ten part series of ‘Letters’ poems written about and from, this, his ‘second’ place.
