I'm Sophie and I'm a writer of poetry, short fiction and all strange things in between. I'm an avid Instagrammer where I love to post bookish, swoon-worthy squares and share what I'm reading.
Having been resident writer for immersive theatre company, Riptide, and run creative writing and wire workshops, I have now just completed my Creative Writing MA at Bath Spa University and become Bristol Boat Poet 2018.
Look out for me at Spoken Word Poetry events around the Southwest and come say HEY GAL, I love drinking Stella too.
A selection of my poems from the Flint can be found at www.bathspaflint.com.
“Sophie Dumont mastered the luminous narrative-as-lyric, deeply personal in tone and founded in the sort of articulation which ensured it travelled way beyond itself to make its wider grasp. The images were exact and strikingly original. When she encountered the work of Ocean Vuong, her poems mined a rich seam, struck a crisp, a fresh, a compelling new register.”
— Tim Liardet, Poet and Professor at Bath Spa University
