Rebecca Goss poet

Rebecca Goss grew up in Suffolk and now lives in Liverpool.


The Anatomy of Structures (Flambard, 2010)

Keeping Houston Time (Slow Dancer Press, 1997)

Rebecca Goss began writing poetry as a teenager and was Special Award Winner in the 1991 WH Smith Young Writers’ Competition judged by Ted Hughes. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Cardiff University and has taught creative writing at Liverpool John Moores University.

Rebecca Goss has enjoyed success in competitions including the Bridport Prize, Way with Words/Mirehosue, Writers’ Inc and The New Writer. She was included in a New Voices Showcase at the Troubadour Café in London in 2006.

Her Bridport Prize-winning poem, Aeroplanes, has been made into a film and animated by Eek films during Liverpool’s Poetry in the City Festival in 2008 where it was screened on the BBC Big Screen and can be found on You Tube.

“This is Rebecca Goss’ first full collection, and it’s a startlingly good beginning. For her the poem’s the thing. When she chooses to write about imaginary situations, she still achieves the tang of truth. This is good, strong, efficient writing, accurate, economical, clear-sighted, from a woman who has her finger on the pulse of life,” RV Bailey (Envoi 157)
