~ Guest Poet Information~
Cora Greenhill has three recent collections, The Point of Waking (Oversteps Books 2013), Far from Kind (Pindrop Press, 2016), and her epic poem, Artemis, The People’s Priestess (Three Drops Press, 2017). Her work has appeared widely eg in The North, The Interpreter’s House, Magma, Tears in the Fence, Orbis, MsLexia etc. She hosts Sheffield’s Writers in The Bath, and lives in The Peak District and Crete. She taught Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythm dancework for over 20 years, and her poetry is full of the rhythms and metaphors of dance and the earth.
Praise for Cora Greenhill. “Greenhill applies the mind of a scholar, the ear of a poet, and the eye of a painter to create a fascinating allegory that explores the conflict between patriarchy and matriarchy as expressed in the sibling rivalry between twins Artemis and Apollo. An amazing achievement.” Debbie Taylor, Editor of Mslexia magazine.
