Sue was born in 1956, grew up in Kent and lived and worked as an English teacher or tutor in East Sussex, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, California, Oregon, and New Zealand, before moving to Somerset in 2012. She believes it may partly be a sense of impermanence that prompts her to write poetry or an attempt to express the elusive essence of things, to evoke the sense of a person, place or experience, to bring it closer.
Sue has read and written poetry since a child. Now, through Fire River Poets, she is discovering the joys of listening to, reading, writing and editing poems with other poets and gaining the confidence to share her own poems with a wider audience.
Links to some of Sue’s poems are given below:
Meeting my other (Badbury Clump)

Waiting, for June and Will
