Profile of Geraldine Green

(Cumbria, United Kingdom) I began to write poetry after graduating in 2000 from Liverpool John Moores University, clutching a first class joint honours degree in Imaginative Writing/Literature, Life & Thought.  

More importantly, after spending a week on a poetry workshop at Ty Newydd, in north Wales, called Poetry, Healing and Meaning, co-run by David Hart and Rose Flint, a light went on inside after I discovered that poetry, and other acts of creativity, could be used to heal.  I now use writing in healthcare.  Recently I completed a Research Diploma, that I called Singing the Land, which looked at the influence of the land on the poetry of Emily Bronte and how I feel the land can also help us heal.

It made sense, being a primitive sort of person, as well as one who believes that creativity and spirituality dance together, spiral time and space dna-like, together.  I have an enthusiasm for linking art and science; quantum physics and mysticism; seeing and feeling where things overlap.  I’m interested also in pushing boundaries back in poetry; looking at the language of doctors, artists, plumbers, chefs, bus tickets, the internet, other cultures and seeing where this can take us.

I think it helps to ‘place’ me by saying that I am moved by the cave painting of Lascaux and Aborigine art and also Gregorian chant and the music of Hildegard of Bingen.  Passion, sensuality, earthiness stir me: too much head, cleverness, elitism in art leaves me unappeased.  I’m interested in what makes us human; why we’re such a mess of bones and flesh and guts and skin and why also we can be moved to such depths and heights of awe and wonder…

I had my first poetry collection published, in pamphlet form, by Flarestack Publications earlier this year, called The Skin.  I’m now onto my second collection and awaiting a friendly publisher who doesn’t mind taking risks.  Just to further hammer home my feeling that I have so much to learn regarding poetry and my hunger to share my enthusiasm with others, this October I’ve started an MA in Creative Writing at Lancaster University.

And favourite poets?  Lorca, Holub, Neruda, Vasko Popa, Rumi, Hafiz, Ib’n Arabi, David Jones, R S Thomas, Wilfred Owen, Selima Hill, Rilke, Irina Ratushinskaya, Nazim Hikmet, David Hart and Jack Mapanje.  I was delighted when Jack Mapanje told me after he’d workshopped one of my poems, that I was “a poet who wrote from the heart.”
