Polly Atkin lives in Cumbria. Her collections include Basic Nest Architecture and Shadow Dispatches
which won the Mslexia Poetry Pamphlet prize and a biography Recovering Dorothy: The Hidden Life
of Dorothy Wordsworth. She is working on a memoir exploring place, belonging and disability. Much
With Body, her second collection ‘spotlights at last difficult and nuanced experiences so often made
invisible by the actions of enabled bodies.’ (John McCullough) Hannah Hodgson is a poet, writer,
palliative care patient and advisory consultant. Her poems have been published by BBC Arts, The
Poetry Society and Magma and she is a recipient of the 2021 Poetry Business New Poets Prize.
Where I’d Watch Plastic Trees Not Grow is a pamphlet of ‘extraordinary poems that contain both
humour and grief towards a world that continually dehumanizes disabled people in multiple ways.
With startling images, Hannah Hodgson balances anger and love, despair and hope’. (Kim Moore)
