Jacqueline Saphras collection from Nine Arches Press, All My Mad Mothers, was shortlisted for the 2017 T.S. Eliot Prize and in the same year A Bargain with the Light: Poems after Lee Miller was published by Hercules Editions. She lives in London and teaches at The Poetry School.
Melanie Brantons first collection of poetry is My Cloth-Eared Heart (Oversteps Books, 2017); her second will be published by Burning Eye in late 2018. Her full-length poetry show has been showcased at the Edinburgh Fringe and she represented Bristol at the Superheroes of Slam 2017 national finals.
Michelle Madsen is a poet, theatre maker, activist and investigative journalist. From giant salad tosses to interpretive haiku to compulsive mountaineering, Michelles work uses the absurd, the unexpected and the subversive to question power, privilege and the structures we live by.
