An interview with Carole Bromley by Maria Isakova Bennett

'A little girl asked me on a school visit last week ‘How did you start writing?’ and I answered honestly ‘It just sort of happened.’ I could have given the longer version which is that I started to write seriously when I took my sixth-formers to Lumb Bank and worked alongside poets like Carol Ann Duffy, Don Paterson and Jackie Kay. I went to Peter and Ann Sansom’s wonderful writing days in Huddersfield, so it was a natural progression to submit a group of poems to their pamphlet competition.'
