Ellora Sutton


I’m Ellora Sutton, a poet living in the wilds of North East Hampshire. I’ve been writing ever since I could hold a pen – although I like to think I’ve improved a bit since then!

My debut chapbook, All the Shades of Grief, is out now from Nightingale & Sparrow.

I achieved a First Class honours degree in Journalism and Creative Writing from the University for the Creative Arts in 2018, and am currently studying an MA in Creative Writing with the Open University.

My work has been published online and in print, both near and far. I’ve appeared in magazines such as The Cardiff Review, Mookychick, Eye Flash Poetry Journal, Poetry Birmingham Literary Journal, Kissing Dynamite, and the Poetry Society’s Poetry News. I won the inaugural Artlyst Art to Poetry Award with the Poetry Society, the Pre-Raphaelite Society’s 2019 Poetry Competition, the 2019 Hampshire Prize (part of Winchester Poetry Prize), and the Young Poets Network Carol Ann Duffy Challenge; I was commended in the 2018 Winchester Poetry Prize, and shortlisted for the 2020 Bridport Prize. You can read some of my published work here.

I write a lot about grief, mythology, nature, and feminism – sometimes all at once. When I’m not writing I’m reading, shopping, or flouncing about the heather in retro dresses (see right).
