Katie Griffiths grew up in Ottawa, Canada – the daughter of Northern Irish parents. In 2016 she was published in Primers Volume One (Nine Arches). She has been longlisted in the National Poetry Competition twice, and her pamphlet My Shrink is Pregnant was longlisted in the Paper Swans Press competition. Her work has appeared in publications such as Ambit and The Rialto and on the Proletarian Poetry website. A member of Malika’s Poetry Kitchen and Red Door Poets, Katie is currently working on a first full collection. She is also singer-songwriter in the band ‘A Woman in Goggles’ whose offerings, so far, have had precious little to do with either skiing or swimming.
