Emma Purshouse

Performance poet, and first ever poet laureate of the City of Wolverhampton

Emma Purshouse has – over the years – worked as a car valeter, college lecturer, taxi base operator, signwriter, building society dogsbody, and Coca-Cola mystery customer. Anything to avoid a dull life.

‘Dogged’ is her debut novel, set in her beloved Wolverhampton, and we’re very proud to be starting 2021 by publishing it on Ignite.
