My new poetry collection, The Girl Who Cried, is now available from HappenStance.
My first full collection, Noir, is too.
Poems have appeared in a range of magazines (The Rialto, The North, Smiths Knoll and Magma, among many others), online (for instance, in The Compass, and the York Literary Review), and in various anthologies. My pamphlet, The Long Woman (Pighog Press), was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award 2012.
An Arts Council award in 2014 helped me complete Noir.
I studied English at UCL, and have an MA in Creative Writing and Personal Development from the University of Sussex.
I worked as an editor for fifteen years, including as Managing Editor of Which?, and Editor of Health Which?. I then freelanced, while raising my children. Today I edit a local magazine.
And I go walking.
This blog – my little corner – will, I hope, let me record and explore some things that interest me: around loneliness, resonance, and what is good writing?
