Harriet Tarlo is a poet and academic who lives in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. She is a Reader in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University. She is particularly interested in landscape and environment, and in experimental and open form writing. She engages in these through the composing, performing, publishing and reviewing of contemporary poetry, as well as writing academic essays on these subjects for books and journals such as the Journal of Ecocriticism, Jacket, and Critical Survey.
Harriet has travelled far and wide in the dissemination of her practice and research – most recently as far as Lyon, France, and Minneapolis, U.S. as part of her collaboration on the Tributaries project with Judith Tucker. Publications include Poems 2004 – 2014 (Shearsman 2014), Poems 1990 – 2003 (Shearsman 2004), Nab (Etruscan 2005) and Sound Unseen and behind land with Judith Tucker (Wild Pansy 2013, 2014). She is editor of The Ground Aslant: An Anthology of Radical Landscape Poetry (Shearsman, 2011), which was reviewed on Radio 3’s The Verb and is now taught in several universities.
