Lottie Angell specialises in writing poetry and short stories after graduating with a 1st Class Masters in Creative Writing from Brighton University. During her time there she was tutored by award winning poet John McCullough who says of Lottie’s Poetry: ‘Lottie Angell writes spiky, politically urgent poems that are also full of subtleties. She expertly handles the white silence of the page to expose the operations of patriarchy by probing the limits of the speakable. Her work is exciting, compassionate and fundamentally uplifting.’
