“a poet of immense precision and eloquence”

– (Osprey)

GerrieFellowsAuthorMy poetry has been described as “coming to poetic terms – in the body, the mind and the ear – with ways in which technology has expanded human possibility”. I’ve written about IVF in Window for a Small Blue Child and about hydro-electricity in The Powerlines.

The poems in my fourth collection, The Body in Space (Shearsman, April 2014), are concerned with the living presence of place, in particular the landscapes of Scotland and what is written over them by history. The poems bring together people and places – family relationships enacted through webs of intimacy or distance, the dead remembered in interleaved images of art and medicine.

A Scottish poet with roots in New Zealand, my work appears widely in anthologies of Scottish Poetry.

To arrange readings, workshops or mentoring, contact me directly or through Live Literature Scotland, which helps fund events for groups and schools.


Praise for Window for a Small Blue Child

“a spell-binding sequence of poems.”

– (Stride Magazine)

“at once a daring and skilfully crafted diary, and an exhilarating and cathartic work of art.”

– (Stewart Conn, Scottish Review of Books)
