Karen McCarthy Woolf is the author of two poetry collections and the editor of seven literary anthologies. Her debut collection An Aviary of Small Birds (Carcanet, 2014) was shortlisted for the Forward Felix Dennis and Jerwood Prizes, and was an Observer Book of the Year. Her second, Seasonal Disturbances (Carcanet, 2017), was a winner in the inaugural Laurel Prize for ecological poetry. In 2019 she moved to Los Angeles as a Fulbright postdoctoral scholar and Writer in Residence at the Promise Institute for Human Rights at UCLA exploring the relationship between poetry, law and the impacts of capitalism on black, brown and indigenous bodies. After returning to the UK, 2021 took her to Brazil as an artist in residence at the Sacatar Institute in Bahia where she was researching new work that explores sugar and its cultural and material legacies.
