Hazel is a poet and writer based in the Highlands of Scotland. Her writing explores memory, relationships, the importance of compassion, for others and ourselves. Her work also explores struggles with mental health and body-image; subjects she believes need to be discussed in an open and honest way.
Hazel has recently completed a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing with UHI Inverness. Whilst poetry is her first love, she also enjoys writing short fiction and has been published in Northwords Now and the Scottish Book Trust’s 2019 Anthology, The Blether. Her poetry has also been published online with Poetry in Public, 192 Magazine and Bandit Fiction.
Hazel is mother to two children, two dogs and one 3-legged cat, and wife to husband, Darren. She is a feminist who believes in equal rights and that trans rights are human rights. She is proud to be an ally to the LGBTQIA community, who need our support now, more than ever. Love is love, hate is corrosive.
