About Me

Welcome to Judi Sutherland’s writing site.

I’m a poet and novelist living in beautiful Teesdale, county Durham. After taking redundancy in 2011, I studied for an MA in Poetry at Royal Holloway, University of London. In 2014 I relocated from Oxfordshire to Barnard Castle, County Durham, with my husband, Frank (who works for a pharma company) and two Battersea rescue cats, Socks and Zoe.

I’m a town councillor in Barnard Castle. I’m also the proprietor of The Stare’s Nest, a webzine of poetry with a political and social conscience.

My poems have been published in a range of magazines and also appear in Black Light Engine Room’s Dark Matter VI chapbook, which I share with Lancastrian poet, Jim Burns.

Still writing Teisa

My journeys along the River Tees are continuing, and I’m writing as I go. I guess I am about a third of the way along my poetry journey but I am doing a little bit here and a little bit there, as time allows. The landscape certainly is inspiring. Here’s a shot at Cow Green reservoir, near the source of the river. Cross Fell, the highest mountain in the Pennines, is in the background.And at the other end of the river, this is the old steelworks at Redcar, seen from Teesmouth. Such a mixture of rural and urban landscapes.
