Poet & Author

Luke Palmer writes poetry and YA fiction. His debut pamphlet of poems, Spring in the Hospital, won the Prole Pamphlet contest in 2018. His second, In all my books my father dies, was released in March 2021 by The Red Ceilings Press. His first YA novel, Grow, will be published in April 2021 by Firefly Press. He was named a Next Generation poet by Agenda Magazine in 2016, and came third in the 2020 Winchester Poetry Prize.

His work has been described as unflinching, immaculately crafted, stark and beautiful, with a melancholic and entrancing authorial voice.
