My full collection, This Thing of Blood & Love, came out in February from Two Rivers Press: https://tworiverspress.com/shop/this-thing-of-blood-love/

I was delighted to be awarded third prize in the Rialto RSPB poetry competition https://www.therialto.co.uk/pages/2022/04/26/nature-and-place-2022-winners-announced/ for my poem ‘Ghosts’ and first prize in the Winchester Poetry Festival prize last autumn for my poem ‘The Starlings’ – both poems are elegies for the grievous loss of wildlife in our islands.

I took part in an online conversation with Yan Martell, The Art of Fragments, about how the fragments of text and artefact have shaped and informed our work; watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_PCVmvD86E

My poetry collection, Days of Wonder, created in collaboration with artist Rebecca Swainston during the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic, was launched on 6 October last year: http://hippocrates-poetry.org/poems-to-live-for-live-2/6-october-2021-poems-to.html
