Words down the Line is releasing a special edition of its postcard to accompany Robert Priseman’s exhibition. The poem – The Change – was kindly donated by Sue Dawes and the illustration is ‘Pearl’ by Robert Priseman. We were very taken by the pro-woman, punchy and hard-hitting nature of her poem.

Sue lives in Wivenhoe with her family and has been part of OTR for over ten years.  Her poem is part of a series she’s working on about ‘unspoken things.’

She has an MA in Creative writing from Lancaster (2010) and writes poetry and prose. Her writing has been published in Mslexia, Poetry Wivenhoe and in various anthologies.

Sue also loves writing genre fiction and was shortlisted for the Debut Dagger in 2013.  The way to her heart is through Border Terriers, books and cake.
