I’ve been writing poetry for five years now, and have had poems published in magazines including Oxford Poetry, New Statesman, Acumen, The Interpreter’s House, Pennine Platform, and Prole. I studied Microbiology at University, and after completing a PhD, spent 23 years working in the pharmaceutical industry. After taking redundancy in 2011, I studied for an MA in Poetry at Royal Holloway, University of London where I was the lucky recipient of the 2012 Maragret Hewson Prize, awarded by literary agents Johnson & Alcock. My poetic interests include myth and ancient history, landscape and roots, work and craft. All sorts of things, really; what it is like to be human. I live in Oxfordshire, with my husband, Frank (who works for a pharma company).
I review poetry books, pamphlets, and events for Sabotage Reviews and Dr Fulminare’s Irregular Features. Links at the top of this page will lead you there. I’m also a Huffington Post blogger, on a range of subjects where I have Opinions.
