Knotbrook Taylor is an Angus-based poet. A retired inspector of care services, he now concentrates time on his love of photography and poetry. Member of the Blue Salt Collective. His first chapbook Beatitudes was published in 2007.

The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in Fraserburgh commissioned his second collection Scottish Lighthouse Poems, which was published in 2011 and explored the rich history and arcane knowledge related to lighthouses in Scotland. It is available from the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses.

In 2014 he won the Erbacce prize for his collection Ping-Pong in the Rain, a book which explores the juxtaposition of random ideas within a poem and finds connections. It includes themes exploring love, death and the film Bladerunner.

He has been published in many magazines including Poetry Scotland, The Poets' Republic, Cutting Teeth, Northwords Now, Pushing out the Boat, and The Interpreter's House.

He will always be thankful for the belief and support shown in his work by the people at Erbacce.
