Jacqueline Saphra is a poetry agitator, organiser, mentor and teacher. Her career as a playwright, commissioned by touring companies and later writing for theatres like The Watford Palace and the Manchester Library Theatre was slowed by the advent of motherhood. But four children later, she had managed to fit in a regular poetry column for Good Housekeeping; Joshua’s Egg, a play for children for Theatre Centre; a screenwriting qualification at The National Film School and several years in development hell in the film industry. Since then, she has written three full poetry collections and four chapbooks. In 2017, All My Mad Mothers was published by Nine Arches Press and shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot prize and A Bargain with the Light: Poems after Lee Miller was published by Hercules Editions. Last year saw the publication of Dad, Remember You Are Dead from Nine Arches Press. Veritas: poems after Artemisia, a sonnet sequence about the life and work of the renaissance painter Artemisia Gentileschi was published by Hercules Editions in May 2020. Her most recent play, The Noises, was produced at The Old Red Lion Theatre in 2019 and is a finalist for Best Innovative Play in the Standing Ovation awards 2020. She is currently editing her most recent project: 100 daily sonnets charting a personal and political journey during lockdown this year.

Jacqueline is an enthusiastic editor, performer and, librettist and collaborator and has an ongoing work relationship with the composer Benjamin Tassie. She has conceived and organised several Poem-A-Thons involving scores of poets, raising awareness and funds for charity. She is a founder member of Poets for the Planet.

Jacqueline lives in London and is one of the core tutors at The Poetry School. www.jacquelinesaphra.com
