Faye Latham is a writer, visual poet, rock climber, cyclist and all-round mountain enthusiast based between Snowdonia and London. In January 2020 she was awarded the Literature Wales Bursary for Writers Under 25 to support the development of her poetry, which resulted in her work being published in various literary journals and online magazines including UKClimbing.com, Lumin Journal, The CTC ‘Rewilding’ Anthology and the Cambridge Literary Review.
Little Peak will be publishing Faye’s debut poetry collection in Autumn ‘22. This visual collection takes F. S. Smythe’s British Mountaineers (1942) as its primary text and transforms the pages through the subtractive process of erasure. Each page is reworked into poetry; landscapes to be experienced through the collage and stitching techniques with which they have been written. Like rock climbing and mountaineering, the path discovered in erasure poetry is often found by trial and error – moving around the page until something feels right, even if the outcome is not always certain.
