Lisa Clarkson

Lisa Clarkson (she/her) was born on the cusp between Cancer and Leo, is half Irish and half English, and is always in two minds about everything. She wrote a lot of poetry as a teenager and won some prizes (including the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award) before abandoning poetry, changing her name, and losing herself in fiction. Now she’s trying to rediscover her poetic voice.

Lisa’s poem, These Days, is published by Arachne Press in our 2021 Solstice Shorts anthology, Words From the Brink
