Hello. I’m Katherine Crocker, poet and musician.
Since winning the Indigo Dreams poetry pamphlet prize in 2010, I published my first book in 2012. The pamphlet included illustrations by Joseph Crocker. Many of the poems had already appeared in literary magazines, so I thank all those editors who encouraged me to continue to write. Some of the poems appear on this website.
In 2017 I publish my second book. Everything is completed – the artwork by Joseph and David Crocker who have collaborated to create five unique illustrations for a selection of poems and the original lino-cut I have made for the front cover. The new collection is published in late March (available to buy) and the book launch is on Thursday, 13th April. See the events page for details
In 2013 a selection of my new poetry was short-listed for the inaugural Poetry School/Pighog Press Pamphlet Prize.

For all those interested in the above picture, it’s a photograph I took while on a boat trip (River Niger) to Timbuktu.
