Susan is a passionate believer in the potential of poetry to make a difference, to inspire shifts in perception and create new patterns of thought and experience. To this end, she is committed to writing and promoting poetry with an ecological focus.

As well as regularly performing her work at environmental events and conferences, and running ecopoetry workshops, she has been featured in a wide range of ecopoetry journals and anthologies, both print and online, including Entanglements (Two Ravens Press), Plumwood Mountain, Nature in Legend and Story, For Rhino in A Shrinking World, Stravaig, No Condition is Permanent: 19 Poets on Climate Justice and Change and Seastories. Her work has also appeared in Dance the Guns to Silence (Flipped Eye Press), an international anthology marking the tenth anniversary of the death of the Nigerian environmental activist and writer Ken Saro-Wiwa.

Susan has been involved with the Dark Mountain Project for a number of years, performing, and co-curating the Woodland Stage, at its Uncivilisation Festivals, and her poetry features in three of its annual anthologies – Book 2, Book 3 and Book 4.
