Frances Corkey ThompsonFrances Corkey Thompson’s poetry tends to get itself written when she’s supposed to be doing something else.

She’s in anthologies and websites, and in a variety of magazines, The Rialto and The SHOp to name but two, and publications like the 2007 Oxford Poets Anthology, which led to exciting readings in Paris and Appledore!

In 2008 she was one of the winners in both the Mslexia Competition and the Arvon Competition, the latter involving a glittering affair at the Royal Festival Hall. This was also the year HappenStance published her pamphlet.

In 2012, she took second prize in Mslexia once again.
