Colin's poetry has appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies and a pamphlet, Getting the Hang of It (2002) and his first collection, Human Geography (2005) were published by Driftwood Publications. His second collection, Taking Down the Tree House, was published by Headland Publications in 2011. More recently he’s been writing short stories and flash fiction.
