Her three collections with Bloodaxe Books are The Secret, Conquest and most recently Hand & Skull. She also researches violence against women. ‘The poems in Zoë Brigley’s Hand & Skull are strange-making, unsettling, and thrilling in their originality. Here Brigley bravely confronts what it is to be a woman in a world that sees women as prey’ (Maggie Smith).

Her poetry collection, Wild Embers, features rewritten fairytale heroines, goddess wisdom, and is an explosion of femininity, empowerment, and personal growth.
