Anna Percy was born and educated in Norfolk, but has lived in Manchester for more than a decade. In 2010, she co-founded Stirred, the influential pro-feminist collective which organises poetry performances and writing workshops throughout the north-west of England. Her award-winning poetry is written for both the page and the stage, is post- pastoral, occasionally surreal, and an exercise in hope for sexual equality and an advocacy of women's rights.
