Susan Skinner / Holliday

Susan has always enjoyed writing, illustrating and performing. As she needed to earn a living, a classroom seemed to be the ideal place in which to do all these things, so she became a teacher.

 

A little later she married and had three children, all of whom needed stories. Then, when her sister died, Susan and her husband inherited another four children. At this point there was a necessary gap in her creative work. All was not lost however. A few years later she was invited to go on the quiz show Busman’s Holiday. It was then Susan introduced herself to millions as a poet! She has never looked back.

 

Susan has won numerous prizes for her poetry including the Julia Cairns first prize for poetry (Society of Women Writers) four times, the Kent & Sussex Poetry Society first prize, third prize in an Open University Shakespeare Society sonnet competition. Her poems and articles have appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies including Outposts, Envoi, Acumen, Weyfarers Childrens’ Magazine.

 

Susan also writes under the name Susan Holliday.
