Poetry Focus: Holly Corfield Carr


Holly Corfield Carr (pictured above) is a recipient of a 2012 Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors and was a finalist in the Sky Arts Ignition: Futures Fund for young artists. Eyewear is very glad to welcome her to these pages this misty, rainy London Friday, and not just because she wears glasses.

She currently lives and writes in Bristol where her short fiction is appearing on billboards and digital devices as part of the pervasive soundwork, Missorts. In 2011 she was commissioned to work in collaboration with a sculptor and ceramic artist in the derelict Spode Factory in Stoke-on-Trent. She once agreed to spend the night writing in a replica of Thoreau's cabin for the artists Tyman and Rushton but ran away from Miterdale forest after meeting with some wild pigs. She is learning to be brave.
