Blog tour signpost: Elizabeth Rimmer

Now the blog tour has brought you to p&g and you have explored a little. Here is another blog you may enjoy as your next destination:



Elizabeth Rimmer was born and educated in Liverpool and moved to Scotland in 1977, where she lives beside the river Forth. Poet, gardener, river-watcher, and grandmother, her roots are Catholic, radical, feminist and green. She is inspired by weather, landscape and tradition, the work of craftsmen, gardeners, foresters and musicians, and writes about language, legends and heritage. Her first full collection Wherever We Live Now was published in 2011 by Red Squirrel Press.

Her poems have been widely published in magazines such as Poetry Scotland, Northwords Now, Gutter, Stravaig, Eildon Tree and Dark Mountain. More recently her poetry has reflected a growing interest in the philosophy, psychology and spirituality of ecological movements, and she is particularly interested in the mythology of women in connection to the earth and to nature. She is an active member of The Scottish Centre for Geo-Poetics and helps to edit its on-line magazine Stravaig.
