After studying creative writing at UEA, Ramona Herdman had a first collection published and a poem in that year’s Forward anthology, followed by several blank years of not writing at all.

Since 2009, however, she has had poems widely accepted in magazines and anthologies.

She lives in Norwich and is a committee member for Café Writers. She won the Poetry Society’s Hamish Canham Prize in 2017.

She tweets occasionally @ramonaherdman
