Sophie Herxheimer is a poet and visual artist. She’s held many residencies and projects, and her drawings have been shown at Tate Modern as well on a 48 metre hoarding on the Margate seafront. Her book Velkom to Inklandt was an Observer book of the month and a Sunday Times book of the year. Just out is her new book with Hercules Editions, The Practical Visionary, a collaboration with Chris McCabe, inspired by William Blake. Her next book is called 60 Lovers to Make and Do and will come out next year with Henningham Family Press. Sophie is from South London and lives there still.

She has benefited from and is grateful for the encouragement of other poets based in Norwich. She has had poems published in ‘Ink Sweat and Tears’, ‘Brittle Star’, ‘Obsessed with Pipework’ and ‘Lighthouse’. ‘
