Antony Irvine is a Canadian living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and has been writing poety seriously for about ten years. He writes, "I am particulary attracted to 'language experimentation', if you could call it that. Thus the Ashbery influence and a strong liking for Dylan Thomas. My poetics, which could be summed up in 'The Colour of Saying' and in the general musicality of his language, remain very much part of the way I write (I often think of poetry in terms of colour or music.)"  He graduated with a degree in linguistics and French and Spanish Literature from a university in Canada.
