Invited to read throughout Asia, Europe, and the U.S.A., she was awarded a gold medal for poetry at the XXWCP in Taiwan. The Arts Council (London) sponsored her visit to Mongolia to collaborate with women poets and this resulted in a book and a C.D. She holds the prestigious Hawthornden Fellowship and was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
A reviewer and interviewer she has interviewed some of the most eminent women poets throughout the world – these have been compiled into a book Without Skin published in 2015. A mentor and workshop leader both in the U.K. and abroad, she works with experienced poets to enable them to approach their poetry with a new perspective and with novice poets to achieve a first collection.

She hosts two poetry venues in London – the revenue from these events support three Cold Weather Shelters.
