Aviva Dautch won the Poetry School / Nine Arches Press Primers Prize in 2017 and her winning sequence about clearing her mother’s hoarded home was published in Primers Volume Three in 2018.  She has a PhD in contemporary poetry and her poems have been published in magazines and anthologies internationally.

‘Aviva Dautch is a powerful young poet, whose work engages very intelligently with serious issues, but who has a formal dexterity and a command of social tone that makes her feel approachable; she’s someone to watch for the future and someone to enjoy in the present.’
