Profile

Sarah Corbett lives in Hebden Bridge, but she grew up in North Wales, ever an English outsider. She has published three collections of poetry with Seren Books:The Red Wardrobe(1998),The Witch Bag(2002) andOther Beasts(2008).The Red Wardrobewon an Eric Gregory Award and was shortlisted for the T.S Eliot and Forward prizes. She has written several short films and a full length script - a collaboration with a film director that may extend to TV Drama. She nearly has a first draft of a children's novel, and has just started working on lieder with a young composer.

Sarah is in her last year of a PhD in Creative Writing at Manchester University where she is writing a verse novel (gothic-surreal, mystery-love story) that will be taking up most of her creative attention for the next twelve months. She comes to Lancaster University after five years teaching with The Open University on their distance learning Creative Writing courses.
