Elizabeth-Jane Burnett

Elizabeth-Jane Burnett is a writer of English and Kenyan heritage. She was born in Devon and her work is inspired by the landscape in which she was raised. She is the author of Swims, a Sunday Times Poetry Book of the Year, and The Grassling, and her poetry has been highly commended in the Forward Prize. She is a regular contributor to the Guardian Country Diary. In her new book, Twelve Words for Moss, she celebrates the unsung hero of the plant world with a unique blend of poetry, nature writing and memoir. Making her way through wetlands from Somerset to County Tyrone, Burnett discovers the hidden vibrancy and luminous beauty of these overlooked places.
