Edward Picot

I was born in 1958. Originally I come from Hertfordshire in the UK, but I now live in Kent, with my wife and one daughter. In 1992 I was awarded a Ph.D in English Literature, and in 1997 I published my thesis in book-form, under the title Outcasts from Eden: Ideas of Landscape in British Poetry since 1945.

Since the year 2000, when I set up my first website, I've been working in the health service and self-publishing online in my spare time. I started my second website, The Hyperliterature Exchange, in 2003: it's a review and directory of hyperliterature for sale on the Web, with links to the places where it can be bought.

I try to publish something new every month: usually a piece of criticism one month, followed by a piece of creative work the next. Many of my recent creative pieces have been either entirely or partially inspired by the games I play with my daughter Rachel. They therefore feature a lot of jokes and toys.

Online, the groups with which I have been most heavily involved have been the WebArtery Group, the TrAce Organisation, and Regina Celia Pinto's Museum of the Essential (and Beyond That) (as well as the museum's newsletter).

These communities have been inspirational and supportive to me over a period of several years, and through them I have formed a number of online friendships with other artists and critics.
