Stickleback XIX:

Wish You Were Here


Lucy Crispin

Lucy Crispin is a prize-winning poet who lives in the Lake District, England. Asked what she writes about, she mutters something vague about ‘Um, well… what it’s like being a person’. She’s inspired by the natural world, travel, other people, the life of the spirit; interested, too, in the way our experiences shape us. Both in her poetry and her non-fiction she celebrates what she calls the everyday extraordinary. She facilitates poetry-based CPD for fellow therapists and charitable organisations, and has taught creative writing in third-sector organisations, schools, and at the Swanwick Writers’ Summer School.

Lucy is a former Poet Laureate of South Cumbria. Her work has appeared recently in Eildon Tree, Allegro, The Selkie, Channel, The Blue Nib, The Black Bough and Iceberg Tales, and her pamphlet shades of blue will be published by Hedgehog Press in 2020. 2019 saw the first performance of The Song of the Silent Child, for which Lucy wrote the libretto and Clive Walkely the music. A dramatic cantata with a folky, fable-like feel, The Song of the Silent Child explores our culture’s uneasy relationship with sadness. Lucy has also written lyrics for composer Tamsin Jones, and is beginning another major piece of work in collaboration with Bob Duffield.
