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’s poetry has a rare ability to suitain the highest emotional and spiritual stakes. Every word takes the risk of meaning – and feeling – through both register and music.

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.
