Pamela Scobie 

Otley  Poet

Pamela Scobie began by writing plays for a theatre-in-education company. She moved on to novels for young people and was drawn to poetry in 2008 when she saw poems pasted up outside a cafe in Bridlington. Since then, she has published two collections with Half Moon Press: “Oh, Darling Doctor Frankenstein” and “The Dark Side of the Bed”. She frequently uses the first person, not just to explore her own emotions, but to create voices for those who have been silenced or ignored: a murdered wife, a child assassin, Judas Iscariot, Frankenstein’s monster, to name a few. She has been celebrated for her “wit and killer rhymes” and awarded first and second prizes in the Ilkley Literature Festival poetry competition.       

Sandra Burnett

Sandra Burnett is an Otley Poet and her poems have appeared in magazines including Prole, Frogmore Papers, Strix, Magma, Coast2Coast2Coast and online at Poems Under Water, Algebra of Owls and Ekphrastic Review.  She has also had poems in several anthologies including Spokes – poetry on two wheels, and most recently, Frogmore Press anthology Pale Fire – new writings on the moon.  Her pamphlet New Lease is published by Half Moon Books and her collection Between Sea and Sky will be launched in August.
