My poems have been published in a number of journals, including The North, The Rialto, Orbis and MsLexia. My first collection Equinox is published by Cinnamon Press.
My work has been widely anthologised and my poems have won several awards, including first (2012) and second (2014) prizes in the Manchester Cathedral Poet of the Year competition, runner up in the Wigtown Poetry Competition (2013). and runner up in the British Haiku Award 2014.
Here’s what other poets have said about my work:
“A lovely, perfectly-crafted haiku in the shasei tradition.” Kim Richardson
“Her poems are calm, with a considered vulnerability” Martin Figura and Helen Ivory
“Both patient and powerful” Rachel Mann
“Subtle and effective” Helen Tookey
” Beautifully gauged, drawing on themes of exploitation, regret, and shame; an unusual and tenderly grieving poem.” Penelope Shuttle
