This year I'll be travelling over 2000 miles of waterways, writing poems about the people and places I encounter. This week I'm working on a poem commissioned for Nottingham Light Night which will light up the canal on 23 February.(less)

I had been invited to Upernavik, an island on the northwest coast of Greenland, to write about its history and the present-day community but I hoped to record some observations on the wider Arctic environment too. However, the weather conditions were so extreme that winter I couldn’t walk much further than the hilltop cemetery, where coffins decorated with plastic wreaths were lined up in rows, waiting for the earth to unfreeze the following spring. The poems in the book respond both to my hopes and fears in this harsh environment, and to the important life lessons I learned from the islanders and the ancient objects in the museum.(less)

The Library of Ice is published on 1 November. I'm delighted to be able to share its first review already (many thanks to Arabella Currie writing for Oxford Writers' House).



If you'd like to join me to celebrate ice and its many voices, look out for events happening around the country in November and December.
