Helen Mort was born in Sheffield. She has published two pamphlets with tall-lighthouse press and her first collection ‘Division Street’ (Chatto & Windus, 2013) was shortlisted for the Costa Prize and the T.S. Eliot Prize, winning the Fenton Aldeburgh Prize in 2014. Her new collection ‘No Map Could Show Them’ (June 2016) is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation.
‘I admire poems that climb the walls and sit on the rooftop, but without you really noticing quite how they got there. Poems that describe a view I haven’t seen before, or – better still – one I’ve seen but never fully appreciated.’
