Liz Diamond has won a number of poetry competitions, including our very own Local Competition last year. Her publications include both a pamphlet and full collection in addition to two novels with Picador. She is also a visual artist, working with clay and painting in pastels, acrylics and oils.

Sue Proffitt was the winner of our Open Competition in 2017. She has written poetry all her life, while working as a psychotherapist, teacher, actor, waitress, gardener and shop assistant. Now, she says, it’s time to try and write for a living! Sue lives in a coastguard cottage where her deepest love is for the more-than-human world: the animals, plants, wild land and seascapes around her. Her first collection, Open After Dark (Oversteps Books) was published in March last year. She is now working on her second collection which will focus on the ten years she spent accompanying her mother into dementia.
