Elizabeth Rimmer



Elizabeth Rimmer describes herself as a poet, gardener and river-watcher. She was born and educated in Liverpool and moved to Scotland in 1977, living in Edinburgh until 1982, when she moved to Stirling.

She studied for a MLitt in medieval studies at Stirling University where she worked for ten years as assistant to the Catholic Chaplain. Since then she has worked in a Youth Theatre, a herb garden and an allotment, and been involved in campaigning for the rights of refugees and asylum seekers, and supporting arts organisations working with people with mental health problems.

Her poems have appeared in Poetry Scotland, Northwords Now, The Eildon Tree and Gutter. Reviews have appeared in Northwords Now and the on-line edition of The Scottish Review of Books, and she writes a blog The Gleam of Light on Water.

She is currently on the editorial board of Stravaig, the on-line journal of the Scottish Centre for Geo-poetics.

Her first full collection of poems, Wherever We Live Now, was published by Red Squirrel in 2011.
