Kate Potts’ debut pamphlet Whichever Music (tall-lighthouse, 2008) was a Poetry Book Society choice and was shortlisted for a Michael Marks Award. Her first full-length collection is Pure Hustle (Bloodaxe Books, 2011). Her second collection, Feral, sets out to explore and trouble the boundary between ‘animal’ and ‘human’.
Kate teaches poetry and creative writing for the University of Oxford, Middlesex University, Royal Holloway and The Poetry School, freelances as a mentor and editor, and works for an independent publisher. She has been awarded two Arts Council England grants and a Hawthornden Fellowship.
