    Anne Born’s obituary



  • A beautiful celebration of Anne Born’s life and work took place in Malborough in Devon on August 1st. Included in the service were personal and professional eulogies and a selection of Anne’s poems read by members of the Company of ¬†Poets. After the service family, friends and fellow poets all moved on to the Port Light restaurant overlooking the sea, to continue remembering and celebrating a remarkable woman.



  • It is with sadness that we report that following a long illness Anne Born died on Sunday night. Anne created Oversteps Books in 1992, and ran it until 2008. As well as being an imaginative and supportive editor, Anne was a fine poet herself and a renowned translator from Scandinavian languages. She will be sorely missed.



  • Australian poet Glen Phillips, who co-authored ‘Singing Granites: Poems of Devon and Gondwanaland’ with Anne Born in 2008¬†has now had some of the poems from that book translated into Chinese, and they are included in a new bi-lingual Chinese-English poetry book published in Mudanjiang China.
