MEET THE SPRING CHOICE: JEN HADFIELD
Posted on January 06 2021
"As a woman with quite a few of the traits associated with Asperger’s Syndrome, I worry about truth and misunderstanding a lot." - Jen Hadfield, PBS Spring Bulletin
Jen Hadfield's fourth poetry collection The Stone Age explores neurodiversity. Passionately involved with the wild world, she uses poetry, lyrical essay and, occasionally, sculpture in cast porcelain, to try and share her intense experience of the here-and-now. Her work has garnered numerous awards, including the 2008 T.S.Eliot Prize for her second collection, Nigh-No-Place, (Bloodaxe). Jen is a Creative Writing Teaching Fellow at Glasgow University and is building a house in Shetland, very slowly.
