Ruth Larbey was born in Cyprus, and grew up in Nottingham, Hong Kong and rural Cumbria.  She has spent her last two years working at an international development charity in London, after completing her MA at Warwick University in 2008. She organises music and art performance events in her spare time.

“There’s a drastic incandescence to Ruth Larbey’s syntax which pulls you into her poetry. Writing with an edgy control reminiscent of Emily Dickinson, her poems create exacting ‘electric constellations’ of vision and nerve in which no word is wasted, no darkness left unexplored. As Dickinson wrote, ‘A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.’ Ruth Larbey’s language is alive and gravid.” David Morley
