Guest Poet: Julia Deakin
Julia Deakin was born in Nuneaton and worked her way north to Yorkshire via Shropshire, the Potteries and Manchester. A compelling reader, she has won numerous prizes and featured twice on Poetry Please. Her collections are praised by leading UK poets. 'Crafted, tender poems, written with passion and purpose,' said Simon Armitage of her first; her latest, Sleepless (Valley Press 2018) is commended by Gillian Clarke. When not writing, or editing Pennine Platform, Julia enjoys walking and ice skating.
