They say everyone has a book in them…so if you’ve always fancied trying to free your inner storyteller, come and join us in the Festival Tipi for some creative inspiration.

In 2019, she was the co-editor of The Valley Press Anthology of Prose Poetry, alongside Oz Hardwick. Her fourth collection of prose poetry was Alice and the North (Valley Press). ‘There is deep humanity, moving observation and a wicked sense of humour in these poems’.
