Helen Jayne Gunn

Helen’s poems have been published by Mslexia, Leaf Books, Shoestring Press, Soundswrite Press and other poetry publications. 

She started reading and writing poetry when she got a job in a prison teaching creative writing sessions. A few years ago, she began studying for a Fine Art degree. In 2016 she was selected to show her sculpture and drawings at Leicester’s Attenborough Arts Centre. The exhibition curators decided to print some of her poems which they felt supported the show’s title: The Nature of Change.

Helen is an environmentalist, concerned about sustainability and climate change. These issues frequently seep into her poetry themes.
