Karen McCarthy Woolf

Karen McCarthy Woolf was born in London to English and Jamaican parents. Her collection Seasonal Disturbances explores nature, the city and the sacred and is described by Warsan Shire, whose work she edited in Ten: The New Wave, as ‘a darkly humorous exploration of the human condition’. Karen’s poems are translated into Spanish, Turkish and Swedish and she has represented British writing globally from Singapore, Mexico and the Caribbean to the US.
