Kate North writes poetry and fiction and is from Cardiff.   She has previously published a novel, Eva Shell (2008), described as forensic in its dissection of…emotional landscapes and frequently very funny with it... Wales Arts Review, (2015).  Her first poetry collection was Bistro (2012), described as “skilful” and “particularly poignant,” in New Welsh Review, (2012), as “sparkling with energy and vitality,” in Orbis: Quarterly International Literary Journal, (2012) and as containing “beautifully compact insights and unexpected images,” in Cha: Asian Literary Journal, (2012). 

Kate is a Reader in Creative Writing and runs the MA English Literature and Creative Programmes at Cardiff Metropolitan University.  She is a regular guest critic on the BBC Radio Wales’s Review Show and she is Chair of Literature Wales.

She has just published a short story collection called Punch. Her 2018 poetry collection, The Way Out, contains poems that relate the personal, the political, the everyday and the absurd.  ZoĆ« Brigley has described the writing as ‘muscular’ and ‘commanding’ and Philip Gross says that reading it is ‘like being outbound on a journey’.
