Poetry

Naming Bones, my debut pamphlet, was published by ignitionpress in 2019. It was named as one of the 44 poetry books of 2019 in Poetry Wales, and was one of PBS pamphlet selector A.B. Jackson’s three ‘other favourites’ for Winter 2019.

My poetry has been published in magazines and journals including Ambit, Brittle Star, Butcher’s Dog (forthcoming), Envoi, The Fenland Reed, Finished Creatures, The Interpreter’s HouseIota, Lighthouse, Magma, MIROnline, Mslexia, The North, Poetry Birmingham, Smoke, Under the Radar and BBC Wildlife. It has featured in ‘Poet’s Corner’ in The Sunday Times, and in the anthologies The Best British Poetry 2012 (Salt) and Places of Poetry: Mapping the Nation in Verse (Oneworld, forthcoming). Poems have also been published in Cammag, a sound magazine for blind or visually impaired people in Cambridgeshire, and on the Poetry School’s blog.

In 2019 I was awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice grant by Arts Council England, to be mentored for ten months by Rebecca Goss.

In 2008 I won second prize in the BBC Wildlife Poet of the Year competition.
