Lisa Dart began writing poetry about seven years ago. Since then her poetry has appeared in many British poetry magazines, the tall-lighthouse anthologies automatic lighthouse and city lighthouse as well as the eco-anthology Earth Songs and  an anthology of contemporary British poetry Into the Further Reaches.


Her first full volume The Linguistics of Light  was published by Salt in March 2009. She has read her poems in Greece, Italy, America and the UK. In 2005, Lisa was one of four winners for the international Grolier Poetry Prize USA. Her pamphlet The Self in a Photograph was published by tall-lighthouse in 2006. Her poems journey from the north Norfolk coast across a vast emotional landscape to America and beyond. The work is complex, challenging exploring themes of love, time and the relationship between language and the world. She has recently completed her Doctorate in Philosophy and Poetry at the University of Sussex.
