Her first book of poems, Black Country (Chatto 2014), described as a ‘sooty, soaring hymn to her native West Midlands’ (Guardian) was a Poetry Book society recommendation, received a Somerset Maugham Award and won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Award and Forward Prize for Best First Collection 2014. her pamphlet The Republic of Motherhood (Chatto, 2018) was a Poetry Book society Pamphlet Choice and the title poem won the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem 2018.
