Janet Fisher

Janet Fisher was born in Birmingham and grew up in North Oxfordshire. Having graduated in Law she spent some years in legal publishing and F E teaching. Sadly, children and long term illness stymied any chance of a proper career, but on her family’s move to Huddersfield she joined Peter Sansom’s workshops and began to write poetry.

She was for twenty years co-director and co-editor of the Poetry Business. In 2014 she gained a distinction in an MA in Creative Writing from Manchester Metropolitan University.
