Julia Deakin

Bio

Julia Deakin was born in Nuneaton and worked her way
north to Yorkshire via Shropshire, the Potteries, Manchester and York to Huddersfield, where she began writing poems. The Half-Mile-High Club (2007) was a Poetry Business Competition winner and her full-length collections, 
Without a Dog (2008) and Eleven Wonders (2011) drew praise from nationally-renowned poets. Widely published,
she has featured twice on Poetry Please and won
numerous prizes.

Julia’s ‘Unattributed Sampler’ is beautifully presented here in Christine Murray’s Index of Women Poets. It’s currently the only way to see the sampler itself

A free monthly round-up of opportunities for poets, compiled by Jim Bennett. Gold dust!

An informative network of writers working in community settings and schools.

There is always more to learn from Yorkshire’s literary giants.
