Her poem 'Ariosos for Lavish Matter' was highly commended in the 2020 Forward Prize, and an epistolary work with Katy Lewis Hood, Tangents, was longlisted for the 2021 Ivan Juritz Prize. A collaborative exhibition, The Palace of Humming Trees (2021), was recently presented at Glasgow's French Street Studios, with artist Jack O'Flynn and curator Katie O'Grady.
Praise for The Luna Erratum
The Luna Erratum offers no truth except in things - colours, materials, beings, dreams, schemes of language, human artefacts and locations - and their known convergences, all of which hold as much affective weight and capacity for transformation as the events that precipitated this profoundly graceful, unsettling and mesmerising book.
