Guest poet:  Julia Deakin

JULIA DEAKIN was born in Nuneaton and meandered north via Manchester to Yorkshire where, after a misspent youth, she began writing poems. The Half-Mile-High Club (a 2007 Poetry Business competition winner), Without a Dog (Graft, 2008) and Eleven Wonders (Graft 2012) impressed poets as diverse as Simon Armitage, Anne Stevenson, Ian MacMillan and Michael Symmons Roberts. She has won numerous prizes and featured twice on Poetry Please. Here she showcases her new collection Sleepless (Valley Press, 2018).
