Pat Winslow worked for twelve years as an actor and left the theatre to take up writing. Her poetry collections include Dreaming of Walls Repeating Themselves, her winning short collection in the 2007 Templar Poetry Pamphlet & Collection Awards, Skin & Dust (Blinking Eye), The Girl in the Iron Lung (Crocus), The Fact of an Eye (Amazing Colossal) and Harvest (Jackson's Arm). Pats fiction has won several awards and appears in anthologies and magazines and several of her poems have been in the prize lists of a number of major poetry competitions, especially in the last couple of years.
"Here is a poet of keen vision, remembering and analysing the past. Her language balances on the tightrope stretching between past and future - ‘A little kindness in salt, a little bitterness/ on the tongue’. In this original and moving collection we see how this poet explores her ‘geometries’ of place and event with wit, delicacy of perception, and panache."
