JULIA DEAKIN was born in Nuneaton and worked her way north to Yorkshire via Shropshire, the Potteries and Manchester. Each of her collections is praised by leading UK poets. ‘Crafted, tender poems, written with passion and purpose,’ said Simon Armitage of her first; her fourth, Sleepless (Valley Press 2018) is commended by Gillian Clarke. When not writing, or editing Pennine Platform magazine, Julia enjoys walking and ice skating. A compelling reader, she has featured twice on Poetry Please.
