Sally Jenkinson is a poet who lives and works in the Forest of Dean, but she grew up in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, where they say poem like this: ‘poym’. Her second short collection of poems ‘Boys’ was published in June 2016 by Burning Eye Books.
‘The fine line between the poem as something to be read aloud in public and something to be enjoyed in private is walked here, and it lends a tension to the collection which makes it compelling.’ Ian Parks
In 2014 she toured Australia, where she took her show ‘Folly’, to The Adelaide Fringe, with support from Arts Council England and The British Council.
She has performed at festivals and lovely poetry events all over Britain such as Glastonbury, Womad, Secret Garden Party, Larmer Tree, Boomtown, Shambala, Sunrise, Cheltenham Poetry Festival, Bristol Poetry Festival, Tongue Fu and Hammer & Tongue.
