Karen’s work has been published in the UK, USA and Ireland and is included in several anthologies. She co-wrote ‘Penned In’ with Gaynor Kane, published by The Hedgehog Poetry Press in 2020, publisher of her recent debut pamphlet ‘Missing Pieces’ and of her forthcoming pamphlet ‘Pivot Points & Portals’, co-written with Caroline Johnstone.
