Jenny Hockey has lived in Sheffield for the last 14 years and belongs to a number of poetry writing and reading groups. She helps run Writers in the Bath, a monthly venue where writers from all over the UK give readings. She continues to publish in magazines such as The North, The Interpreter’s House, Magma, Orbis and Dreamcatcher. Jenny is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Sheffield; she reviews poetry collections and writes memoir as well as poems. Away from her desk she cycles, walks, sews, knits and relaxes with craft. She has been active in the campaign to save Sheffield’s street trees and was arrested for the first time last year at the age of 70.
