"Her range is impressive… vivid language recreates the physical sensation of what is being described, ranging from the gritty and muscular to the tender and deeply thoughtful… Smith/Doorstop have a star on their list."
Matt Simpson, Stride

"Routh is a characterful poet, her work freely espoused, crafted, roiling, sucked along by mysterious tides and undercurrents, full of changes of light and weather, and framed by a sense of hazardous voyaging."
John Muckle, Shearsman

"An assured, original voice."
Elizabeth Burns, Stride

Jane Routh manages woodlands and a flock of geese in the Forest of Bowland, north Lancashire, where she’s lived for over thirty years. She taught and exhibited photography for several years, but more recently most of her creative work has been in writing – non-fiction, as well as poetry.
