Katherine Crocker has been writing poetry since 2002. She has published two collections of poetry. Ten poems from her latest book, Breathing under Water, were shortlisted for the Poetry School/Pighog Press Pamphlet Competition in 2013. Her first collection, Long Exposure at Cordoba, won the IDP collection competition in 2010.
Recommendation to read Breathing under Water from Bernard O'Donoghue:
'Katherine Crocker's poems are founded in reality: the reality of the material - stone and water - and the reality of imaginative experience. What they show is how these two faces of reality come together to make art: that in fact this is what art is. The poems carry total conviction and compulsion.'
