Maria Apichella


Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor and award-winning poet based in East Anglia.

My poetry collection Psalmody won the Eyewear, Melita Hume Prize, 2015. My  pamphlet Paga was a winner of the 2014 Cinnamon Press Pamphlet competition. I wrote these as part of my PhD in English and Creative Writing at The University of Aberystwyth in Wales where I lived for ten years.

I am currently writing short stories, a memoir and children’s fiction. In between these projects, I teach with the University of Maryland, University College, Europe.

I am available to edit and advise on poetry or prose manuscripts, teach creative writing in schools or to individuals.
