Rennie Parker was born in Leeds and currently lives in Lincolnshire, which often forms a background presence in her work. She began publishing in 1987, with a first collection Secret Villages appearing in 2001. This was followed by several collections with Shoestring Press, recently The Complete Electric Artisan (2017). She has published criticism on early 20th century poetry, writing about the pre-1914 Georgian generation. She enjoys landscape in all its forms, but there is always strong element of character and dialogue in her work, because she originally intended being a radio dramatist. For the past ten years Rennie has appeared in readings and festivals around the Midlands, and she is particularly delighted to be reading in Cheltenham.
