Angela France is a Gloucestershire-based poet whose second collection, Occupation, has been published this year by Ragged Raven Press. She has had poems published in many of the leading journals in the UK and US and has been anthologised – most recently in A Twist of Malice: uncomfortable poems by older women. She has just completed an MA in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of Gloucestershire

"Angela France writes with passion and clarity; here is a meticulous sensuous imagination, richly structured and musical." - Penelope Shuttle
" The poems are always vigorous and rhythmically controlled. Occupation establishes a clear, firm, valuable voice in contemporary poetry." - George Szirtes
