Alwyn Marriage - a Palewell Press author
Dr Alwyn Marriage is widely published in magazines, anthologies and on-line, and her fourteen published books include poetry, fiction and non-fiction. She lectured in philosophy at the University of Surrey and
edited a journal before being head-hunted to be Chief Executive of two international literacy and literature aid agencies. She was awarded an international Rockefeller scholarship to work on one of her non-fiction
books. She has a PhD in Aesthetics, and an MSc in Environmental Architecture and Advanced Energy Studies.
After one of her poetry collections was published, and another commissioned, by Oversteps Books, she was invited to take over as Managing Editor when the previous Editor became ill; and she has run this poetry
publishing house successfully since 2008. She is a research fellow at Surrey University, has held Poet in Residence posts with Ballet Rambert and Winchester Arts Festival and has won several prizes for her work.
She gives frequent guest lectures and poetry readings all over Britain, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and greatly enjoys interacting with live audiences.
Alwyn serves on the Society of Authors Poetry and Spoken Word Group committee. She is a member of Poets for the Planet and played an active part in their Twitter campaign, #BeginAfresh. She has belonged to the
Poetry Society for many years, and is a member of the Devon Company of Poets and Moor Poets. Her most recent poetry collections are In the image: Portraits of Mediaeval Women (Indigo Dreams 2017) and Pandora's
Pandemic (SPM Publications 2021); and her recent novels are Rapeseed (Stairwell Books, 2017) and The Elder Race (Bellhouse Books, 2020).
