Paul Brookes is a writer, a poet, a historian, a photographer, a genealogist, a shop assistant, and a grandfather. He’s written a play that was produced for stage. He’s been a member of poetry performance groups. He’s published numerous poetry chapbooks and collections. He’s lived in Wombwell, in south Yorkshire in the U.K., for most of his life. And it is there that he manages a web site called The Wombwell Rainbow.
The site is about poetry, and it’s about poets. Brookes regularly, sometimes several times a week, publishes interviews with poets, most in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., but from many other countries as well. And whenever he finds poems and stories that he likes, he writes a brief story and links to them. He promotes poets and their new poetry collections. It was through The Wombwell Rainbow that I found poets Nigel Kent, S.R. Jakobi, Tom Sastry, Sarah Thomson, and others.
