Chris Considine

After a teaching career in Bedford and several years spent in rural North Yorkshire, Chris Considine now lives in Plymouth, overlooking the Sound. Some of her poems recall the Yorkshire countryside she loved, others give tantalising glimpses of a Breton cottage she visits (A century old, this one – a stone-built house / with steep-pitched, small-tiled roof) while others shine a light on real people, past and present. Strange Days is Chris’s sixth collection.

    Sadly, all readings and launches scheduled for the next few months have had to be cancelled or postponed because of the corona virus. We look forward to getting back to our public events when life eventually returns to something like normal.

    In the meantime, readers may be interested to have news of the latest novel by Alwyn Marriage: ‘The Elder Race’.
