Diana Dixon was born in Cornwall, into a family of poets – Daphne du Maurier was a family friend and a writing influence. Whilst at London University Diana joined the Poetry Society, reading and performing there, as well as at the Bush Theatre and the King’s Head, Islington
Diana settled in West Penwith in 1996. She was poetry coordinator for the first Penzance Literary Festival, and subsequent years until 2017, returning in 2019 to present the 9th ‘Open’ Poetry’ session.
Her own poetry themes encompass: love, illness, loss, rootlessness and death – very occasionally, something funny appears!
