Sandra Burnett is an Otley Poet and enjoys performing her poetry at local open mic events. Her poems have been published in Prole, Frogmore Papers and on line, most recently at Poemsplease.me and ThePoetryBox.co.uk. She has also had poems published in the OWF Press poetry collections Spokes, The Garden and Surprise View and is delight that OWF Press agreed to publish her first poetry pamphlet New Lease.
There are birds and flowers and scaffolders in the poems in Sandra Burnett’s stunning collection New lease, together with the ghosts of famous artists, family members and bicycles. Quiet and reflective, always suffused with warmth and humour, Sandra is a superb poet of the everyday, finding the words for what it means to be human, and in the process making the ordinary utterly extraordinary.
