Scarberry Hill

Josephine Dickinson

Josephine Dickinson, profoundly deaf from childhood, read classics at university, and then taught music for many years. She has had compositions performed in London, Devon and Orkney; and poems published in magazines. She lives with her husband in Cumbria, high in the Pennines, ‘penning a few sheep in a gap of cloud.’ Michael Donaghy says her poems are, ‘exceptionally original. Hers is a vision edged with mystery and rendered with arresting, occasionally breathtaking, craft.’
