Jen Hadfield’s third poetry collection, Byssus,  was published by Picador in 2014. currently teaches Creative Writing at Glasgow University, and has dedicated this year to outing various projects that have been bubbling away on the back-burner. Her stay at Cove Park will give her a chance to work on a collection of creative non-fiction; she also hopes 2018 will be the year to bring a picture book about rainbows and a series of cast, feral porcelain apples to fruition. Jen is building a house in Shetland, very slowly.
