Heidi Williamson

While working as a copywriter and writing trainer for Virgin Money in Norwich, Heidi studied poetry and prose in evening classes at the UEA. Her first collection, ‘Electric Shadow’, was supported by a grant from Arts Council England and was published by Bloodaxe in 2011. It was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney Prize for Poetry.


Her second collection was inspired by being a printer’s daughter. She received time-to-write support from Arts Council England and enjoyed working with specialists from the John Jarrold Printing Museum. ‘The Print Museum’ received the EAW Book by the Cover’ Award and the 2016 East Anglian Book Award for Poetry. 


Her third collection, ‘Return by Minor Road’, revisits her time living in Dunblane at the time of the Primary School shooting in 1996. Through poems about landscape and loss, the poems explore the lasting impact of being an ‘incoherent bystander’ at such a tragedy. 


Her work has appeared in literary journals in the UK, America and Australia and been translated into Polish, German, and Turkish. It has inspired poetry and science discussions in schools and adult creative writing groups, and has featured in NHS waiting rooms, cafés, and at science and literary festivals in the UK and abroad.


Heidi performed a reading from her second poetry collection. Sensual, playful, and stark, ‘The Print Museum’ (pub Bloodaxe) collects, exhibits and fragments from this fading industrial art and displays them alongside pieces driven by the same forces of longing, loss, transformation and delight.
