Jen Hadfield

Jen Hadfield is an English poet and artist now native to Shetland, which was where she wrote Nigh-No-Place, a collection of her poetry from which she has read at Grasmere. Nigh-No-Place was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection, and won the 2008 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry, a prize very rarely awarded to younger poets. A judge of the T S Eliot Prize said of Hadfield: ‘she is a remarkably original poet near the beginning of what is obviously going to be a distinguished career’. Hadfield authors a blog called Rogue Seeds, which is the name she gives to the line of art books she publishes. More recordings of Hadfield’s readings are available at the Poetry Archives, and she has been interviewed by AbeBooks, the Scotsman and the Scottish Poetry Library.
