Victoria Bennett Author

Victoria Bennett was born in Oxfordshire in 1971 and currently lives on a housing estate in rural Cumbria with her husband and son. A poet and author, her writing spans non-fiction, poetry and games-based storytelling, and has received a Northern Debut Award, a Northern Promise Award, the Andrew Waterhouse Award, a Writing Platform Digital Literature bursary and the Mother's Milk Writing Prize, and has been longlisted for the Penguin WriteNow programme and the inaugural Nan Shepherd Prize for under-represented voices. She founded Wild Women Press in 1999 to support rural women writers in her community, and she is the curator of the global Wild Woman Web project, an inclusive online space focusing on nature, connection, and creativity. When not juggling writing, full-time care, and genetic illness, she can be found where the wild weeds grow, tending her apothecary garden. All My Wild Mothers is her debut memoir.
