Suzannah Evans

I am a poet, creative writing teacher and tutor/mentor based in Sheffield. I am currently director of South Yorkshire Poetry Festival and I also work as a freelance poetry editor and publicist.

My poetry has been widely published in magazines including Magma, The Rialto, The North, Poetry Review and The London Magazine. 

My pamphlet Confusion Species was a winner in the 2011 Poetry Business Book and Pamphlet Competition, and in 2013 she received the Andrew Waterhouse Award from New Writing North.

I have taught courses for The Poetry School and workshops for Museums Sheffield, Leeds Museums and at the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery at Leeds University. I have also been mentoring poets to develop their work since 2013 and am passionate about helping writers discover their voice and gain confidence in their writing.

I have been poet-in-residence at Bank Street Arts, with a project focused on the role of poetry in our experience of place. I am currently working on a collection of poems which focus on apocalyptic and futuristic themes.
