Rachel is an Anglican parish priest and writer. She was Poet-in-Residence at Manchester Cathedral between 2009 and 2017 and is the author of five books, including Fierce Imaginings: The Great War, Ritual, Memory and God (DLT, 2017). She is Visiting Fellow in Creative Writing and English at Manchester Metropolitan University. She is the editor of Carcanet’s New Selected Poems of Christina Rossetti (2020). Her poetry was anthologised in Carcanet’s New Poetries VII (2018) and her debut collection, A Kingdom of Love, came out in 2019.
I’ll be talking to Rachel about her poetry, writing and teaching on this week’s show. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
