Biography for Maggie Butt
Maggie Butt is an ex-journalist and BBC television documentary producer, turned poet and novelist. Her publications include five poetry collections and one novel, which revolve around themes of human rights, history and love – with a healthy smattering of humour.
Maggie has a PhD from Cardiff University and taught creative writing at Middlesex University for 25 years, during which she was Chair of the National Association of Writers in Education and principal editor of the journal Writing in Practice. She believes passionately that all writing can be improved.
Her most recent poetry collection is Degrees of Twilight (The London Magazine, 2015.) Her novel House of Dreams (Endeavour Press 2015) is published under the name Maggie Brookes, and she is currently researching a new war-time novel. Her poetry has escaped the page into festivals, choreography and a geo-locative mobile phone app. Maggie is a Londoner, but she and her husband love to be in Whitstable.
