Kate Foley is a widely published, prize-winning poet who has read in many UK and European locations. She is president of the Suffolk Poetry Society. Her first collection, Soft Engineering was short-listed for best first collection at Aldeburgh.
Her working life has ranged from delivering babies to conserving delicate archaeological material. She became Head of English Heritage’s scientific and technical research laboratories. Although she has always written poetry it wasn’t until she gave up the day job that she began to publish more widely.
She now lives with her wife, between Amsterdam and Suffolk, where she performs, writes, edits, leads workshops and whenever possible works with artists in other disciplines. Her poem The Other Side of Sleep, the title poem for Arachne Press’ first poetry anthology, won the 2014 Second Light Long Poem competition.
The Don’t Touch Garden is also available as an Audio Book, read by Kate.
Kate has a poem, Spin, in No Spider Harmed in the Making of this Book
