Daniel Shelley-Smith: Aberystwyth University

Daniel Shelley-Smith is a PhD Candidate at Aberystwyth University, where he previously completed his BA in English Literature and Creative Writing, and an MA in Creative Writing. He is currently completing his thesis – a hybrid of poetry, commentary, and theory – on the subject of physics and poetry.  Daniel describes himself as a conceptual poet. He is interested in the way written language behaves, and in experimenting with ways of constructing poetry as both a visual and linguistic system. Several of his poems have appeared in the student anthologies: The Lunar Attic, Flux, and Seafret. Daniel regularly presents his work at Aberystwyth Univiersity’s annual Postgraduate Conference, hosted by the Department of English and Creative Writing.
