Polly Atkin

Polly Atkin lives in Cumbria. Her first collection Basic Nest Architecture (Seren: 2017) is followed by a third pamphlet, With Invisible Rain (New Walk: 2018). Her second collection Much With Body, will be published by Seren in Autumn 2021, supported by a 2020 Northern Writers Award. She is working on a memoir exploring place, belonging and disability, and a biography focusing on Dorothy Wordsworth’s later life (forthcoming in late 2021). With Kate Davis and Anita Sethi she co-founded the Open Mountain initiative at Kendal Mountain Festival, which seeks to centre voices that are currently at the margins of outdoor, mountain and nature writing.
