She belongs to a small group of writers called The Poetic Biscuits whose aim is to be published as often as possible. Previous publications for her include; Mslexia, Aesthetica, Red Ink and Decanto Magazine.

Dorrie Johnson - enjoys reading poetry and has but only within the last few years has she started to work seriously at the craft of making a poem. She enjoys manipulating words and finds the practice of constructing poetry stimulating and satisfying. She hopes that she is developing a critical eye.

Claire Seaman - Claire is an Edinburgh academic and mother of two teenage boys who dabbles in poetry and a variety of other forms of writing!

Jonathan Shaw  - is an emerging poet in his early 60s, living in Sydney.

Elaine Walker   -  writing involves a lot of time wandering around the garden of her moorland home in North Wales. To prove how productive this is, she has a piece in the new Honno anthology on women and the Welsh landscape, In Her Element, called 'A Crow's Playground on Mynydd Hiraethog'.  Her first non-fiction book, Horse, is forthcoming from Reaktion Books in the autumn.
