Harriet Tarlo

Dr Harriet A.B. Tarlo PhD

Reader in Creative Writing

  • About

    I am a poet and academic who has been practising, publishing and teaching since the early nineties. I have taught at Sheffield Hallam since 2007 and was for three years the Course leader for the MA Writing. Prior to that, I taught for twelve years at Bretton Hall, a college of the University of Leeds where I was Programme Manager for English and for Creative Writing at different times. My English Literature PhD was on the modernist poet H.D., and I retain an interest there, recently publishing an essay on Modernist Women Poets with Palgrave and one on H.D. with Classical Receptions. Throughout the nineties, I developed my own poetry and, these days, I mainly publish my own poetry and essays/reviews on contemporary poets. I have published several poetry books and edited a well-received anthology, The Ground Aslant: Radical Landscape Poetry Anthology (Shearsman 2011). Since 2007 I have collaborated with artists to work on exhibitions and artists’ books involving text and image. Since 2011, I have been working on place-based collaborative projects with the artist Judith Tucker who works at the University of Leeds.

    I have three main areas of interest within writing poetry and poetry criticism: gender, landscape and environment/eco-criticism and experimentalism/avant-gardism. I am also interested in performance and poetry readings and integrate these into the modules I teach. These interests feed into the modules I teach at Hallam. I have been involved in validating a number of hybrid modules (in which students work both creatively and critically in a particular area) and this is my main area of interest in undergraduate teaching. In particular I deliver modules Level VI B.A. modules in “Writing and Environment” and “Experimental Writing” and the Level IV module, “Words and Images”. I also supervise PhD and M.A. students in critical and creative work relating to these areas of interest and am always keen to meet potential research students wanting to work in these areas.
