The first issue of Finished Creatures, editied by Jan Heritage, contains one of my poems, Outback Nights.

I’m delighted to have a poem, Old City, in The Well Review Issue 3. This journal is edited by Sarah Byrne, whom I met on an Arvon course tutored by Paul Muldoon, who is also published in this issue – and look who else is in it! A poem from the first issue, Nightfall, Jane Ash Corner, St. Thomas by Ishion Hutchinson, was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem in 2017 so it’s a magazine well worth checking out (and submitting to!)

I had three poems accepted by guest editor Elisabeth Sennit Clough for Fenland Reed Issue 6: The Body and went to Ely to read at the launch.

Ending It, previously published in Well Versed, was included in the #MeToo Anthology edited by Deborah Alma and published by Fair Acre Press, with all proceeds going to Women’s Aid

Like A Fiddler On The Roof was published in Tears in the Fence 67

Look at the company I’m keeping in there!

 Edited by Lisa Kelly and Raymond Antrobus

After eight attempts, I finally got into Magma!  And I was invited to read at the launch – I even signed a bit of my intro as it was the Deaf Issue. Peter Abraham interpreted the rest, and the poem into BSL. Noisemaker is also available to read on the Magma website


I received my first payment for a poem in print!  For Specialist from Rialto – issue 86 within one of the most stunning cover pics, and in VERY fine company! Subscribe or buy a single copy from the Rialto shop
