Jude Brigley was a Consultant in Learning and teaching. Her lifetime quest is to find ways to engage students with their learning and poetry, which has always been her passion.

Earlier in her career, she ran two performance poetry groups, Connect and Poetry Unlimited, which both worked in schools. She is also the editor of two poetry anthologies, The Poet's House (Pont, 1998) and Exchanges: Poems by Women in Wales (Honno, 1990), which were created with students in mind.

She believes that poetry should be at the heart of the English curriculum and that it can play an important role in everybody’s life. She has spoken on the subject at various places including N.A.T.E., the Library Association and various conferences. While being an experienc

Just been reading 'A Tale for the Time Being.' What an interesting book. Loved its different strands.The book is like a sealed box that `keeps all the worlds alive’ including Nao`s.

Well it is a tour de force. The dialogue is marvellous. Complex and raising big issues about history, the now and metaphysical questioning, it is a very ambitious book. A remarkable book. I found Bobby’s sister’s chapters very disturbing. NA challeng ...more

“A story is never complete.”
Jude Brigley, Approaches To The Study Of Stories From Wales

“Coming down off the trail, I am lost in my own thoughts and unprepared when a bear chugs across the path just before it gives out on the gravel road. I am so distracted that I keep walking towards the bear. I only stop when it rears, stands on hind legs, and stares at me, sensitive nose pressed into the air, weak eyes searching. I have never been this close to a wild bear before, but I am not frightened. There is no menace in its stance; it is not even curious. The bear seems to know who or what I am. The bear is not impressed. ”
Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum

“He remembers which sister
I like least and asks

how she is doing.
(lines 9-11 of the poem 'Divorce')”
Carrie Etter, The Tethers

“He scraped through the dark sand to the center house, two stories, both pouring bands of light into the fog. There was warmth and gaiety within, through the downstairs window he could see young people gathered around a piano, their singing mocking the forces abroad on this cruel night. She was there, proptected by happiness and song and the good. He was separated from her only by a sand yard and a dark fence, by a lighted window and by her protectors.
He stood there until he was trembling with pity and rage. Then he fled, but his flight was slow as the flight in a dream, impeded by the deep sand and the blurring hands of the fog. He fled from the goodness of that home, and his hatred for Laurel throttled his brain. If she had come back to him, he would not be shut out, an outcast in a strange, cold world. ”
Dorothy B. Hughes, In a Lonely Place

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
Frederick Douglass

“Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye
