Dinah Livingstone

Dinah Livingstone had a rural childhood in in the West of England and has lived in Camden Town, London, since 1966, where she has run the small press Katabasis since 1967. She ran the Camden Voices Poetry Group for twenty years (1978-98). She has three children and two grandsons. She has received three Arts Council Writer's Awards for her poetry. She edits the magazine Sofia

She welcomes invitations to give readings of her poems. Her collections include The Vision Splendid (2014), Poems of Hampstead Heath and Regent's Park (2012), Kindness (2007), Presence (2003) and Time on Earth: Selected and New Poems, published by Rockingham Press in 1999. She has published nine pamphlets and nine books of poetry (click for list of her publications and extracts from some reviews). She has given many poetry readings and talks in all kinds of venues at home and abroad.

Her new prose book The Making of Humanity: Poetic Vision and Kindness (2017) explores poetry and theology as sister arts and moves towards a kindly humanism.

It follows Poetic Tales (2010), an essay in four chapters, which offers a way into poetry even for the prosaic or merely puzzled, and a way into theology for atheists and all. And her previous book-length essay The Poetry of Earth (2000).

Dinah ran the well-known Camden Voices Poetry Group from 1978 to 1998. (Formally, it was an Adult Education class at Camden Institute -- ILEA until 1990 -- and then at the Working Men's College.) Her Poetry Handbook for Readers and Writers (Macmillan 1992) is dedicated to them.

She is a translator (from Spanish, French, German and Italian) with a special interest in Latin American writing. Click for list of her translations.
