Welcome to Danielle Hope pages 

Danielle Hope has published four books of poetry – Fairground of Madness, City Fox, The Stone Ship, and Giraffe under a Grey Sky – all with Rockingham Press.

Her work has appeared widely in magazines and newspapers.
She founded and edited Zenos, a magazine of British and International Poetry, edited the work of the Turkish poet, Feyyaz Fergar, was a Trustee and is now advisor of Survivors Poetry, and is editorial advisor for the Literary Magazine, Acumen. 
She has judged several competitions and co-written two plays with Martin Orrell.

In the latest poetry book (published in 2010), Giraffe under a Grey Sky,  we encounter a new character – Mrs Uomo – who muddles through modern urban society – dealing with health care bureaucracy and the Hadron Collider, then finds herself corrupted by a game of monopoly. There are new poems delving social, imaginative, natural and personal worlds – in turns serious and comic - including the workings of the heart, a world ruled by buttercups, grief, and a sequence on the Potter’s Bar rail crash.
