About the Author

Kaycee Hill is a poet and digital mixed media artist. Now based in Southampton, she was born in Winchester and grew up in a working-class, mixed-heritage household - British and Caribbean - in Andover. She spent the past five years working within the healthcare sector as a domiciliary carer and as a support worker for adults with mild learning difficulties. Kaycee was selected for Poetry Ambassadors during the height of the pandemic, was a shortlisted poet for the Poetry London Mentoring Scheme 2020, and has been commended for her poetry by The Young Poets Network. She was one of the three winners of the inaugural James Berry Poetry Prize in 2021, and her first book-length collection, Hot Sauce, is published by Bloodaxe Books in 2023.


"Kaycee Hill's urban eco-poems are always awake to the beauty that can be found in unexpected places - from a makeshift bird-feeder to her mother's 'cinnamon stick / fingers busy making roll-ups'. In this thrilling first collection, her lyric imagination takes us on a journey through the complexities of coming of age in a small working-class town. The heat of Hill's sensuous imagery 'rages down the throat', searing our tastebuds and leaving us craving more."--Aviva Dautch
