Zelda Chapell

I’m a poet and artist; and currently a southerner living in the north.

My debut collection of poetry, The Girl in the Dog-tooth Coat, was published by Bare Fiction Press in 2015, and my work can be found in a number of publications, both online and in print.

I’m currently the co-editor of micro-publisher, As Yet Untitled, publishing books but not quite as you know them.  We also publish the mixed arts journal, Elbow Room; a place for art in all guises.

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.
