Jasmine Gray is a Northern writer, with a love of hybrid texts, explorations of the body, the monstrous, the feral, women gone wild. She mainly writes poetry – particularly ‘collage’ poetry – stealing snippets of what surrounds her, e.g. adverts, over-heard conversations, posts on social media, to create something new.
In 2021, she was the winner of the inaugural First Light Writer’s Prize for her art criticism ‘BARE’, published in Open Eye Gallery’s Tilt magazine. In 2022, she was shortlisted for the Edge Hill MA Short Story Prize and longlisted for the Rebecca Swift Foundation’s Women’s Poetry Prize.
Jasmine’s debut poetry pamphlet Let’s Photograph Girls Enjoying Life was published with Broken Sleep Books in 2019. Her second pamphlet, Open Your Mouth, is forthcoming with Broken Sleep in September 2023.
Elsewhere, she has words with The London Magazine, Anthropocene, Bad Betty Press, Carmen et Error, The Double Negative, and The London Magazine.
