Jane Aldous's headshot

I'm an Edinburgh based poet and happy to work with groups and organisations in the areas listed. 

I have experience of reading to small mixed age groups in intimate setting such as bookshops and cafes.

I aim to offer readings that are warm, inclusive and thought provoking with a humorous edge.

Also, as an older writer being published later in life, I hope I can offer encouragement to other aspiring older writers.

My first poetry collection, Let out the Djinn, was published by Arachne Press in October 2019.
