Geoffrey Winch was born in Reading, Berkshire, in 1943 where he was raised, educated, and first worked as a cartographer. Subsequently he was employed as a land surveyor and highway engineer in Hampshire, Warwickshire and, finally, in West Sussex where he is now retired. He and his wife live in Felpham.

His poetry was first published in 1992, and has since appeared regularly in a wide range of small press publications in the UK, US and online. He was awarded the accolade of ‘The UK’s Best Small Press Poet’ in 2011 by Purple Patch magazine, and in 2020 his poem ‘Shock in the Dark’ was nominated for the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem.

He is, and has been, a member of several creative writing groups within the county, and has devised and led poetry workshops for some of them. For more than a decade he has participated regularly in the Chichester Open Mic.

He has published three pamphlet collections – the most recent being West Abutment Mirror Images (Original Plus, 2017); and three full collections – most recently Velocities and Drifts of Winds (Dempsey and Windle, 2020).
