Helen Mort

A collaboration between Katrina Naomi and Helen Mort

Same but different

Katrina and Helen collaborated for 18 months over lockdown, sending each other poems by poets they really admired and images they found interesting.
Both Helen and Katrina responded to the same images and poems with a poem of their own.
 
They wrote to reach out to each other, to expand their horizons and to keep writing. They didn’t expect the collaboration to turn into a book but Same But Different was published by Hazel Press in September 2021 (link to SBD book).
 
They are running an online master class on collaboration for Arvon .

Same But Different

‘Seriously good poetry.’
