Jen Hadfield: Links.

I am currently writing up a profile of the poet, Jen Hadfield, for the American series, British Contemporary Writers. I met Jen some years ago, when we both won an Eric Gregory Award in the same year, and I am really pleased to be writing up a substantial piece of writing on her poetry. I am compiling these web-links for convenience.
