On the bookshelf


Jackie Scutt

Karen Slater

I've been writing poetry and prose for over twenty years.  Now that I am retired, I am developing and sharing my work.  I particularly enjoy putting words and images together.  I also like to design books.  I use my own photographs and collaborate with artist, printmaker and friend, Karen Slater.  I publish my work through Blurb Books UK.  


You can preview all my work in the Blurb bookstore, free of charge, by clicking the links.  You can download the E-book versions to read on your own device free of charge.


There are three bookshelf pages to browse: 


Poetry & fiction includes my recent collection of short stories Hagiography 1 & 2 and poems In My Hands.  There are also Collected Poems 1996-2017, Triptych, three short stories, and Otherworld, a novella.

Words & images includes Globe in a Jar, a recent collaboration of landscape poems and paintings, Uneased, a collection reflecting on 'lockdown' as well as six more 'photo books' which are collections of poetry, prose and life writing with images.

Non-fiction includes Holding the Conversation - a practical guide for group facilitators, and Venturing into the Labyrinth - a personal appreciation of the films of Pedro Almodovar.
