Ruth O’Callaghan’s work is wide-ranging in subject and versatile in form. I particularly enjoy her meditative and humane poems on human relationships.

Connie Bensley 
on Unportioned


These are poems that confront the worst that life has to show and tell us with a dedication to truths most of us never have the courage to face up to. Only a poet, and probably only a woman poet who has looked unflinchingly at the extremes of good and evil and yet retained faith in an ultimate good, could have written them.

Anne Stevenson 
on Vortices


Sharp and compassionate, not in any easy general way, but through an understanding of what confronts us both in nature and our lives, the language beautifully heard, packed and measured.

George Szirtes 
on An Unfinished Sufficiency

Ruth O'Callaghan

Translated into six languages, Ruth O’Callaghan is an international poet who has read/lead workshops in Europe, Asia and the USA – where she was the only poet reading to nearly a thousand whilst the next day the audience was outnumbered by buffalo. A  poet needs a sense of humour. A Hawthornden Fellow, international competition adjudicator, interviewer, reviewer, editor and mentor she works with both novice – aiming for that all important first collection – and more established poets. She has nine full collections and her book of interviews with 23 internationally eminent women poets is “a very important contribution to world literary history.” (Professor Brant, Professor of Literature at King’s College, London). She was awarded a gold medal at the XXX World Congress of Poets in Taiwan whilst her collaboration with women poets in Mongolia produced a fascinating book. She hosts two poetry venues in London which supports three Cold Weather Shelters and is also the poet for Strandlines, a multi-disciplinary project administered by Kings College, London.
