• Mort, Helen

    Helen Mort (b.1985) grew up in Derbyshire. Five-times winner of the Foyle Young Poets award, she received an Eric Gregory Award in 2007. Her first full collection Division Street was published by Chatto & Windus in 2013 and won the Fenton Aldeburgh Prize. Her second No Map Could Show Them was published in 2016.
