Product description

Review

Heidi Williamson's poems are about contact with the haunted world. She understands uncertainty and loss, as well as the trace loss leaves behind as memory, memory that acts like a Blitz incendiary waiting to ignite later in life. The sensuousness of language is asserted - through tender explorations of our haunted fabric. --George Szirtes

Williamson knows that poetry is a means of investigation, rigorous and disciplined; her poems often begin with a thought that a lesser poet would be content to end with. This approach is evident in the beautiful precision of her language, the way form itself becomes a means of discovery. --Esther Morgan

I am a great admirer of Heidi's poetry and find her fascination with science very exciting. There isn't enough high quality poetry that is empathetic to science around and the value of her approach extends well beyond poetry. --Professor Anne Osbourn of The Osbourn Lab, John Innes Centre (international research centre for plant science and microbiology).

About the Author

Born in Norfolk in 1971, Heidi Williamson has lived in Stirling, Brussels and Salisbury. She now lives in Wymondham, Norfolk. In 2008-09 she was poet-in-residence at the London Science Museum's Dana Centre. She was writer-in-residence at the John Jarrold Printing Museum in Norwich in 2011-14. In 2008 she received an Arts Council award to complete her first collection, Electric Shadow (Bloodaxe Books, 2011), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, which was shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry Prize. Her second collection, The Print Museum, was published by Bloodaxe in 2016 and is on the shortlist for the poetry category of the 2016 East Anglian Book Awards. Her work has been used to inspire poetry and science discussions in schools and adult creative writing groups, and has featured in NHS waiting rooms, cafes, and at festivals.
