Welcome to my website. Please stay and browse.

I am a free-lance poet and editor who is happy to consider commissions, readings, talks and interviews for festivals, arts centres, libraries, universities, colleges and schools.

Three collections of my poetry have been published by Bloodaxe Books. The latest is New Wings: Poems 1977-2007, which was a Poetry Book Society recommendation. I have also written about early women poets, Shakespeare and related dramatists, and have edited plays by John Ford and Aphra Behn.

My libretto, Beyond Men and Dreams (composer, Bennett Hogg), was performed as part of the Royal Opera House’s Garden Venture and some of my poems have been set to music. I welcome opportunities to work with musicians and visual artists.
