Sue Burge is a freelance creative writing tutor, mentor and editor based in North Norfolk, UK. Sue’s poems have been published in a wide range of journals and have also featured in themed anthologies on science fiction, modern Gothic, illness, Britishness, endangered birds, WWI and the ongoing pandemic. In 2016 she received an Arts Council grant which enabled her to write a body of poetry in response to the cinematic and literary legacy of Paris, which resulted in her first collection, Lumière . She has two collections out with Live Canon, In the Kingdom of Shadows and Confetti Dancers. The latter features a sequence of poems in homage to the loss of a dancer friend to the AIDS pandemic in the 1980s. The Saltwater Diaries (Hedgehog Poetry Press) was published in 2020 and examines Sue’s ongoing relationship with the sea. She is currently working on her next full collection which explores the world of the alter ego she left behind in Paris three decades ago. Her collection of eco-poetry, watch it slowly fade, is forthcoming with Hedgehog Poetry Press.
