Melissa Davies

Melissa Davies is a poet recently returned to Cumbria. A short career in cancer care, followed by travel writing, somehow led to a winter spent running a Norwegian island retreat. Back at the foot of the fells she’s using this experience to work on a poetic project of preservation and
sense of place.

Previous poems published by Alliterati Magazine, Maybe Later Press & Oh Comely Magazine.

Melissa’s poems for Time and Time, Solstice Shorts Festival 2019, will be performed as follows:
Bird Wife: Clydebank, Greenwich, Maryport
Halibut: Clydebank, Greenwich, Maryport
Lookout Men: Greenwich, Lisbon, Maryport
Seaweed: Maryport
Værøy: Greenwich, Maryport
and published in the Time and Tide anthology.
