A.  Lee  Firth




Became interested in poetry when realised attended
same school as late poet laureate Ted Hughes.

However do not like traditional formats &
subject matter of much contemporary poetry.

Prefer minimalist/imagist style incorporating
wordplay & deliberate blurring of meaning.

Although obviously male, many editors think that
I'm a radical lesbian - I do not correct them.
