Alyson Hallett is a prize-winning poet whose collections include On Ridgegrove Hill (Atlantic Press, 2015), Suddenly Everything (Poetry Salzburg, 2013), and The Stone Library (Peterloo Poets, 2007). She has also published fiction, written drama for BBC Radio 4 and Sky Television, and undertaken many collaborative projects with artists. She has a poem carved into Milsom Street pavement in Bath and curates an ongoing project on poetry as public art: The Migration Habits of Stones. Alyson grew up in Street, Somerset. Her childhood was infused with Clarks’ shoe factory where her father and sister worked, a view of Glastonbury Tor, and the lattice of rhynes that criss-cross the Levels. She studied comparative literature at the University of East Anglia, gained an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University, and has now completed a practice-based PhD. Alyson is an advisory fellow with the Royal Literary Fund and is currently working on her next book of poems.
Alyson has contributed six poems to Soul of the Earth: the Awen anthology of eco-spiritual poetry
