Genevieve Carver is a writer working in poetry, fiction and interdisciplinary collaboration. Her first poetry collection, A Beautiful Way to be Crazy (Verve Poetry Press 2020) was based on a gig theatre show with a live band highlighting female experiences in the music industry, and her most recent pamphlet Landsick (Broken Sleep Books 2023) explores connectivity and discord between humans and the natural world. Her poetry has appeared in journals including Mslexia, The White Review, The North, The London Magazine, Magma and Poetry News. Genevieve is interested in arts-science collaborations and is currently working with ecologists at the Lighthouse Field Station in Cromarty, writing in response to their research studying dolphin, porpoise and seabirds in Northern Scotland and Orkney. In 2022 she won The Moth Nature Writing Prize for this work, judged by Max Porter.

The 2023 Jessie Kesson Fellowship takes place alongside the Here and Now International Residency.
