Matthew Cripsey

Matthew Cripsey stands on hill with dog.

Matt is inspired by the coast of his native Lincolnshire and the mountains of his escapes – particularly his experiences climbing Munros in winter. He writes mostly about grief and nature, landscapes, the remembrances they elicit and the comforts they bring. He is always moved to watch a snow shower sidle over distant fells or to glimpse a ptarmigan nestling nigh-invisibly in the lee of a rock. As well as writing, Matt also enjoys photography and translation. His translation of Evelyne Grossman’s L’Angoisse de Penser was published by University of Minnesota Press.
