Susan Grindley has died | 16-Dec-14

We were very saddened in the Poetry Library to learn that poet Susan Grindley died on 4th December after braving two years of treatment for cancer.

Susan was a regular presence for many years on the London poetry scene and a member of John Stammers' workshop The Group. Susan was born in Essex but lived most of her life in Hackney.

She was an important force in putting together The Group's poem anthology Gobby Deegan's Riposte in 2004, published by Donut Press, where she contributed three poems, including the title one. She published a pamphlet of her own with Rack Press New Reader in 2013.
