Patrick Cotter is author of the books Perplexed Skin, Making Music, Sonic White Poise and the forthcoming Quality Control at the Miracle Factory. His poems have been published in journals such as the Financial Times, London Review of Books, POETRY, Poetry Review, PN Review & elsewhere and have been translated into over a dozen languages. 

Nuala O’Connor has written: “He has a gift for creating a rueful narrative voice that milks both sympathy and laughs from the reader. The writing is always finely crafted; it is conversational but learned, seemingly effortless, and is studded everywhere with the poet's vast and unusual vocabulary. He is a modern poet in the best sense of that word and he deserves many, many readers."

"Sonic White Poise. Patrick Cotter’s third full collection. Is a book of real substance by an established poet in full flow. This is an insightful, intriguing, sometimes funny report on the world. … One of the more satisfying aspects of Sonic White Poise is in the formal control exerted by Cotter throughout. Some of these poems, in their discursive manner, reminded me of the best of Ciaran Carson’s work, the longer-than-usual lines, the thought process that is followed wherever it may go. ... The language does the work and the poems are intelligent and captivating, and deserve, require, and reward close reading." — Richard Hayes, Poetry Ireland Review
