Kathryn Daszkiewicz was born and brought up in Gosforth, near Newcastle, in the north east of England and studied English at Leeds University. A former student of the creative writing MPhil at Glamorgan, she now lives in Grantham, Lincolnshire, where she works as a teacher.
Kathryn did not start writing until her early thirties and since then has been widely published in magazines including The Rialto, Acumen and Smiths Knoll.
She was awarded a writer’s bursary by East Midlands Arts in 2001 and was selected for their 24-8 project. A selection of her work appeared in the 2001 Shoestring Press anthology of New Writing that same year. In the Dangerous Cloakroom, her first full-length collection, was published by Shoestring Press in October 2006.
Alongside poetry and art, Kathryn’s interests include ornithology and the contrasting landscapes of the Himalayas and the fens, both of which feature in her collection.
In the Dangerous Cloakroom, Shoestring Press, Nottingham, 2006.
