In 2013 I won the inaugural Live Canon First Collection competition. My debut collection The Department of Emotional Projections was published in July 2014.
“The Department of Emotional Projections is both the collection title and a sonnet sequence that grew very slowly; at times, it felt like painting a series of miniatures, balancing washes of colour with details achieved by a fine camel’s hair brush.”
“I enjoy the challenge of formal constraints — it’s like swimming in a small, deep rock pool, or etching a world on an egg shell.”
