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

Her most recent prose book, Poetic Tales (2010), is 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. This follows her previous book-length essay The Poetry of Earth (2000).

Dinah ran the well-known Camden Voices Poetry Group from 1978 to 1998, and her Poetry Handbook for Readers and Writers (Macmillan 1992) is dedicated to them.
