Emma Storr

I am a member of Leeds Writers Circle and have a background in medicine but am now turning my attention to poetry. I have an MPhil in Writing from the University of South Wales. My poems have appeared in The Hippocrates Prize Anthologies of 2016 and 2018, Strix Nos. 2, 3 & 4 and Pennine Platform 2019.  My debut pamphlet Heart Murmur was published by Calder Valley Poetry in 2019 and has a medical theme, based on my work as a GP and on my experience of being a patient, both of which had moments of hilarity as well as poignancy. The ovaries sing, the heart hides and some consultations are shocking in this collection. Do come and listen.
