Jen Hadfield

Jen Hadfield’s poetry is published by Picador. Her fourth collection, The Stone Age, explores neurodiversity and is forthcoming in March 2021. She is also currently working on a collection of essays about Shetland, where she lives. Her work has garnered numerous awards, including the 2008 T.S. Eliot Prize for her second collection, Nigh-No-Place (Bloodaxe). She is concerned with how to live in the here-and-now in an increasingly virtual world, by attending to our interactions with the wild world. She loves contemporary ceramics and is currently working on an installation in cast porcelain that celebrates feral apples. Jen is a Creative Writing Teaching Fellow at Glasgow University and, more widely, teaches students of all ages and confidence levels through a number of high profile creative organisations. She is building a house in Shetland, very slowly.
