My most recent pamphlet is Disappointing Alice, published by HappenStance in 2019. The poems scrutinise “the plight and might of young women in an age of competing symbols” – if you visit the HappenStance website, you can read an extract and find out more. There are also online reviews by Sphinx and John Field and an interview with Sarah James which will give you a flavour of the poems – thank you to everyone who has been kind to my Alice!

 

I also have two pamphlets with the Emma Press: The Flower and the Plough (2013) and Rivers Wanted (2014). The Flower and the Plough is a small illustrated pamphlet of love poems, inspired in part by the Roman poet Catullus. You can read a sample poem on the Emma Press blog and listen to another in a video created by Emma of the Emma Press. Rivers Wanted is my first full-length pamphlet, with an introduction by the sublime Kathryn Maris. It offers up a world where hope and anxiety wrestle, and nature is scratching at the door.

Other poems have appeared in magazines and journals including The Poetry Review, The Rialto, Magma, The Interpreter’s House, The Tangerine, Butcher’s Dog, The Scores, Poetry News, Anthropocene and Wild Court.
