Jacqueline Gabbitas’ poetry has been published in magazines and anthologies and has won prizes in various competitions. In 2006 she was commended in the New Writing Ventures Awards. She is an editor for Brittle Star magazine and works for and a Hawthornden Fellow. She works for Writing East Midlands.. She has an MA in Writing from Sheffield Hallam University.
In 'Mid Lands', Jacqueline Gabbitas reveals an acute ear for the warmth of homeland dialect and an astute and telling eye for startling detail. I thoroughly recommend this impressive debut.
