Rachael Clyne from Glastonbury, is widely published in journals and anthologies. She has been a professional actor and a psychotherapist. Her prizewinning collection, Singing at the Bone Tree (Indigo Dreams), concerns our broken connection with nature. Her pamphlet, Girl Golem ( explores her Jewish migrant heritage. Her new collection, You’ll Never Be Anyone Else, reflects Rachael’s understanding of what it takes to reconcile otherness and expands on themes of identity to include: childhood, Jewish heritage, LGBTQ+, relationships and ageing. Rachael’s poems use a variety of forms and she treats even dark topics like domestic violence with wit and colourful imagery. A distinctive voice from someone who’s spent a life learning self-acceptance and as a psychotherapist, helping others to do similar.


…A potent exploration of heritage and self (and how the two are inextricably intertwined) – Julia Webb.
