Lydia Allison lives in Sheffield, works in Rotherham, and studies in Manchester. She writes poems, often about women, clothes, a dodgy kind of romance, and more recently, food.
In her spare time she likes to attend spoken word nights and occasionally reads (out loud), most recently at the book launch of an Indigo Dreams pamphlet: You’ve Never Seen A Doomsday Like It, by Kate Garrett. She also loves reading modern and contemporary poets (usually not out loud).
She works tutoring and teaching children, adolescents, other magical beings, and adults. Her last project was a series of sessions at Grimm and Co. which led to a number of submissions to the Betjeman Poetry Prize.
