Katrina has had two great new reviews for her latest poetry books.
Here’s a snippet of Matthew Stewart’s review ‘Electric Coherence’ re Katrina’s latest collection, The Way the Crocodile Taught Me (Seren, 2016):
‘Katrina Naomi’s The Way the Crocodile Taught Me shows that she is a compelling poetic storyteller, capable of creating intimacy via distance, layering characters, bringing them alive and generating emotional resonance.’

And writing about Katrina’s Suffragettes-inspired pamphlet Hooligans, Gram Joel Davies says, ‘These poems will make you cheer’, he continues, ‘Writing in ‘The Agonies’, Naomi protracts a metaphor so graphic it leaves me gasping…it is so embodied as to have me squirm in empathetic rage.’ Davies concludes,’Hooligans is a timely book, hopefully a timeless one. A small collection which distils everyday heroism to a courageous liquor.’
