Nationality Irish

Patrick Chapman is an Irish poet, writer and screenwriter, born in 1968.[1]

Chapman's first published work was Jazztown, released in 1991 by Raven Arts Press. This was followed five years later by The New Pornography, a collection of poems described as "darkly humorous" by The Irish Times.[2] His story collection, The Wow Signal (Bluechrome Publishing ISBN 9781904781752) was published in 2007. He also wrote the Doctor Who audio drama, "Fear of the Daleks" (Big Finish, 2007).

Based on his own published story of the same name, he wrote the short drama film Burning The Bed, which starred Gina McKee and Aidan Gillen. Burning The Bed was a prizewinner at the 2004 Worldfest film festival in Houston, Texas[3] and was also named Best Narrative Short at the DeadCENTER Film Festival in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.[4]

Chapman has also written five episodes of the children's television series, Garth and Bev, for Kavaleer Productions.[5] This aired on RTÉ in 2009 and Cbeebies in 2010, and has worldwide distribution.[6]

Chapman is the co-founder, along with writer Philip Casey, of, which seeks to create "a place where readers could find books no longer available elsewhere, and where writers could get a new audience for their texts, while stimulating interest in their work as a whole" and where all the books are placed on the site under a Creative Commons License.[7][8]
