About AngelaFrance View Profile
Angela France has had poems published in many of the leading journals and has been anthologised a number of times. Her publications include Occupation (Ragged Raven Press, 2009), Lessons in Mallemaroking (Nine Arches Press, 2011), Hide (Nine Arches Press 2013) and The Hill (Nine Arches Press 2017), and Terminarchy (Nine Arches Press 2021). Angela teaches creative writing at the University of Gloucestershire and in various community settings. She runs a reading series in Cheltenham, ‘Buzzwords’.
The most valuable thing about the poetry school courses for me has been the ability to share work very directly and immediately with others. The directness of the audience places a pressure on my writing which is productive and has been better than writing for my own eyes only.’
