Julia deakin

Julia Deakin was born in Nuneaton and meandered north to Yorkshire where she taught, married, did a poetry MA and took up ice-skating. Her new collection, Sleepless, views contemporary experience from a distinctly Bradfordian/Yorkshire standpoint. The Half-Mile-High Club – a 2007 Poetry Business Competition winner – Without a Dog (Graft, 2008) and Eleven Wonders (Graft, 2011) also drew praise from nationally renowned poets. She has featured twice on Poetry Please and won numerous prizes – none of them for skating.
