Welcome to this space devoted to the life and work of William Thomas Quirk.
WT Quirk was a Manxman, and a writer, poet, artist, pianist, and composer of songs and musical operettas. Here you will find some of his poetry, and some of his pen-and-ink sketches. We hope the site will grow dynamically, as we transfer the vast collection of W T’s works from the drawers where they lie as typewritten volumes to the Internet page. Still to come: more poems, Manx dialect plays, essays and articles, musical fairy tales, and more… If you’d like to suggest anything you’d like to see of his work on the site, please feel free to get in touch.
Have a look around, and enjoy! If you’re from the Isle of Man, there’s almost certainly something here that’ll look or sound familiar and probably much loved.
