Alicia Stubbersfield

Alicia Stubbersfield lectures in Creative Writing at Liverpool John Moores University, after living and working in Yorkshire, Wales and Gloucestershire. The Yellow Table is her fourth collection. She has been published in many magazines such as The Rialto, Magma, Smiths Knoll, The North, Ambit and The SHOp. She has read at and run workshops for Ledbury and Aldeburgh Poetry Festivals and for the South Bank Centre, and was one of the judges for the 2012 Aldeburgh First Collection Prize. She also co-judges the writing section of The Koestler Trust Arts in Prison prizes for the northern region.

Poetry Review described her first collection The Magician's Assistant as 'confidently sensual and subtle.'

Maura Dooley described her poetry as 'a world in which Marc Chagall, Angela Carter and Stanley Spencer might meet. Her world is witty, moving, affectionate and gaudy yet it is a place where the brilliance of the colours is haunted by what lies in the shadows. Her gaze is unflinching…'

Anne Cluysenaar says 'It is rare to find a poet like Alicia Stubbersfield for whom real life, its untidy pains and delights and uncertainties are genuine, rich, exquisite material for poetry.'
