Linda France, 4 July - 1 August 2016

Picture by: Phyllis Christopher
Linda France's work includes seven poetry collections (published with Bloodaxe, Smokestack and Arc, 1992-2010). She has also worked on a number of collaborations with visual artists for public and gallery spaces and small press publications. Her poems have won many awards and prizes and have been featured on radio and TV, in newspapers and magazines. She gives regular readings: recent appearances have included Keats House,Cheltenham Book Festival, Poetry International at the South Bank Centre, Bridlington and Ledbury Poetry Festivals. Linda is Creative Writing Fellow at the University of Leeds.

Her current interest in matters botanical began during a Leverhulme Artist's Residency at Moorbank, Newcastle University's Botanic Garden (2010-11). This led to a project where she toured Botanic Gardens in Newcastle, Padua, Sheffield, Oxford, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Kew, Scotland, Durham and Pisa – the seed of her new collection and a still-in-progress prose memoir, 'Botanical Road' – supported by ACE, New Writing North, Durham Book Festival, Durham University Institute of Advanced Studies and Cove Park. She is continuing to explore the botanical theme in poetry, prose and photography, particularly drawn to the mythology of plants, their naming and classification and the place they occupy in the individual and cultural imagination.
