Welcome to the world according to Derrick Cranpole

You have reached the website of Derrick Cranpole, poet, artist, retired sea fisherman, champion of seafarers and coastal communities.

Born in Cornwall, England, Cranpole now resides in the south-east coast of Ireland from where writes, paints and offers his opinion on a variety of matters but mostly to do with the concerns of fishermen and seafarers, the people with whom he shares a deep connection.

Cranpole's debut volume of poetry and illustrations, A Woeful Tale, was published in 2012 by The Manuscript Publisher and is available to buy from this website, as well as from all good bookshops. This publication brought together, for the first time, work that had previously appeared in newspapers, magazines, poetry anthologies and even aired on radio. It also includes previously unpublished work.

Since the publication of A Woeful Tale, Cranpole continues to write. He is currently working on a volume of memoir (A Cornish Fisherman's Diary to appear soon) and occasionally contributes to newspapers, magazines, publications serving fishing and coastal communities. Some of his more recent work also appears on this website.
