About Lily

I am a British/European poet and writer from the North East of England. I started writing at 11 and although there were gaps, I just kept going. 

I have self-published two poetry collections. ‘My Father’s Daughterhas poems referring to my Mam’s dementia, the volunteer roles I had in the church and some of my experiences as I began to take my writing seriously. ‘A Taste of What’s to Come has a selection of poems which will be in future books if they haven’t been published already.

I have had poetry, short stories and creative non fiction published in anthologies and in The Hoot. Most recently I was published in Makarelle. Check Lily’s Credits for more details. 

I intend to keep writing and trying to get published online and in anthologies. I will be releasing more poetry books and I have some other ideas too. 

I am currently studying for an Open Degree online with the Open University. I also love to read; check out Lily’s Library for some of my favourite books and blogs. Other than that I love American TV, listening to music and hanging out on social media.  Sign up to my Newsletter to keep updated.

If you ever lose me, you will find me hanging out with my friends in the #writingcommunity on Twitter, give me a shout, a follow or jump in the conversation, new friends are always welcome.
