Full Biography

Lesley Harrison grew up in Dundee, lived for a while in Orkney, and has now settled again on the north east coast. She has worked and travelled in some of the world's more remote places, and through her poems explores how it is to live in these environments. A year spent in Mongolia and China influenced her second poetry pamphlet, One Bird Flying; a later  collaboration with the artist Laura Drever won the 2012 Callum Macdonald Memorial Poetry Pamphlet Award.
