Judith Lal was born in the Cotswolds in 1975. She moved to Norwich to attend The Norwich School of Art and Design where she completed a BA in Cultural Studies before going on to do a MA in Creative Writing at The University of East Anglia.

She received an Eric Gregory Award in 2001. Her pamphlet Flageolets at the Bazaar was a winner in the 2006 Book & Pamphlet Competition.



‘There is an extraordinary eye in these poems: an eye that fuses images from Indian mythology with precise observations of the English countryside and primarily of its bird life. The effect is startling, like a brilliant tapestry, or as if Edward Thomas had met Rabindranath Tagore. But the voice is thoroughly modern, warm, engaging, full of insight and wonder.’ — Vicki Feaver

‘A collection of quiet pleasure, the subject handled with confidence, small ordinary details suddenly significant, as though a gifted flower arranger had composed bridal posies out of wood and weed.’ — The New Writer
