#TPQ5: LUCY FURLONG

Diane di Prima

She is the poet whose name I invoke when I need to kick arse.

Leonora Carrington

Like her art, her writing is the perfect combination of alchemy, truth, humour and the mystical.

Patti Smith

Punk attitude combined with craft and discipline – her writing is always worth reading.

Richard Jefferies

Prolific Victorian writer, naturalist and walker. My recent work has been hugely influenced by his time living in Tolworth and his book of essays, Nature Near London.

William Blake

Poet, artist, mystic, walker, Londoner – the whole quintessential shebang.


Lucy Furlong’s work has been featured in The Guardian and on BBC Radio 4’s Women Who Walk programme. It is also taught as part of the OU Creative Writing MA. Her latest chapbook Sward was recently published by Sampson Low. A second edition of ~clew~ from Hesterglock Press is forthcoming.
