A portrait of Craig Wilson Ruttle by Tyrone (at age 5)
‘My first book of poems was written while raking leaves
on Thetis Island. Many of the poems in my latest book came
into being while walking alone in the forest after dark.’
Craig Wilson Ruttle is the author of two collections of poems. His latest book titled ‘In Praise of Bombast‘ was launched by Silver Bow Publishing in 2018. His first collection ‘So if I built a bird’s nest in the middle of the light‘ was published by Ekstasis Editions (Palimscest Press) in 1986.
