Paula Jennings

Paula Jennings has published two poetry collections: Singing Lucifer (Onlywomen Press, 2002/2007) and From the Body of the Green Girl (HappenStance Press, 2008).  The latter work has been described as “rich, strange poems of surreal imagination and unconventional spirituality”.  Her poems often draw on myths and fairytales, updating or subverting these potent tales.  Paula promotes poetry writing in groups and as an individual mentor.  She also works with people who have dementia, sometimes making collaborative poems. Paula has received Scottish Arts Council Bursaries and has recently been awarded a second Hawthornden Writing Fellowship. She lives in the East Neuk of Fife.
