2020, what a strange year you have been! Though you deprived me of much of my freedom, you led me to success in other ways. Here's what happened in autumn/winter:
My poem Nausicaa was one of twenty shortlisted poems in the Live Canon International Poetry competition 2020 and is part of the anthology of the competition's longlisted poems. Later in the year, I was invited by Live Canon to write a poem inspired by one of the silent women characters in Pindar. My poem Pindar Forgot to Mention, on the character Protogeneia, was beautifully performed by Alice Barclay.
I also have short fiction forthcoming in the wonderful journals Sand and MoonPark Review.
Thrilled to be one of the 28 women selected to offer their visions for the future at Hay Festival #europa28, live and online 6 - 9 October.
Participants include the fabulous Leïla Slimani, Nora Ikstena and Kapka Kassabova. Zadie Smith and Olga Tokarczuk will also make special guest appearances online.
