Winner of the Jerwood Aldeburgh First Collection Prize 1994 Sue Stewart's first collection introduces a poet of lyric intensity who writes with a vivid aural and visual imagination. Her poems effortlessly bridge the real, the surreal and the mythic as they engage with both personal life and the natural world, the commonplace and the extraordinary.
Sue Stewart was born in Lancaster in 1953. She now lives in Berkshire and works as a freelance writer, largely as a writing tutor in schools and in adult education. She has compiled a schools' anthology on green issues 'Big World, Little World' (Nelson, 1991). She is a Literature Adviser to Southern Arts and a member of the Council of Management of the Arvon Foundation.
