About the poet:

Lorna Faye Dunsire is a poet from Yorkshire. Her brand new poetry pamphlet ‘Fiery Daughters’ is entirely devoted to The Brontës and their stories. Lorna has appeared as guest poet at Birdfair Festival, and Poetry at the Parsonage; where she has a tendency to turn up in full Brontë attire. Her poem ‘Bicentenary Brontës’ was featured on TV and BBC Radio Leeds as part of Charlotte Brontë’s 200th birthday events run by Brontë Parsonage museum. Lorna has performed some of her more political poetry to the vast crowds at the NHS rallies for fair pay, as she also works as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS. Lorna creatively weaves themes of politics, justice, love, loss and nature through her poetry.

Her work has been featured on local BBC radio, BBC national news, and poems published in Beautiful Dragons anthologies (A Bees Breakfast, Watch the birdie, Well, dam!) and Indigo Dreams ‘For the Silent’ anthology. Her poetry also features in a YAFFLE press collection of poems about Bradford’s film and TV culture, called ‘Reel Bradford’.
