Helen Jukes

Helen has published fiction and nonfiction in a range of print and online journals, including Caught by the River, BBC Wildlife, Resurgence magazine, Backroad Journal, The Junket, and LITRO. In 2015 she was awarded the Skaftfell Artists Residency in Iceland, and in 2016 the Alde Valley Festival Writing Residency.


She has a Psychology BSc from Nottingham University and an MA in Post Colonial Studies from Goldsmiths College. Since graduating she has worked with charities and organisations such as Crisis, Age UK, Index on Censorship, Complicite, and the Pitt Rivers Museum – developing creative projects all over: from prisons to primary schools.

Helen is currently living off-grid with her boyfriend in the Wye Valley. She regularly delivers sessions on behalf of the Bee Friendly Trust, a London-based charity she has been involved in setting up with her friend Luke Dixon.
