She has given several papers and lectures on the poetry of Frances Bellerby and Jack Clemo, is recently published on Alice Oswald, and is preparing a further book chapter on body and form in Oswald’s poetry. Kym is currently co-editing Soundings: Critical Essays on Alice Oswald, preparing a monograph on Clemo and Bellerby, and working with colleagues from University of Plymouth to promote the work of Charles Causley, as both poet and hub of a creative community that extended beyond Cornwall, through publication and an international conference planned for 2013.
