Anna Lewis's new pamphlet, A White Year, is out now from Maquette.  Set over the course of a year in the Iron Age lake village at Glastonbury, these poems piece together glimpses of life and death in the village against a background of troubling environmental change.

Her debut full-length collection, Other Harbours, was published by Parthian in 2012.  The Blue Cell - poems on the lives of early medieval Welsh saints - came out from Rack Press in 2015.


Anna Lewis has won several awards for her poetry, including the G.S. Fraser Prize and the Robin Reeves Prize, and her story 'Fruit' won the Orange/ Harper's Bazaar short story competition. Her poems and stories have appeared widely in magazines including Agenda, Antiphon, ARTEMISpoetryNew Welsh Review, Poetry Wales and The Interpreter's House.

She lives in Cardiff.

'Anna Lewis's poems have a quiet, disconcerting precision, suggestive but at the same time compressed, they are crafted to last in the mind long after they've been read.'  - Patrick McGuinness

'Lewis's work needs to be sought out and devoured.' - Sarah Coles, Planet
