“Jade Cuttle is creating a new wave of poetry with her orchid duets. Others use music to perform their poetry over, but Jade collaborates with nature. Her ensemble of creativity is going to shift the poetry scene” — BBC Radio London 


"Jade is an exciting new voice in contemporary British poetry who has a fresh perspective on the lyric tradition; her poetry is accessible yet highly innovative and based on an interaction between experimental techniques allied to conventional lyrical approaches"— Daljit Nagra, Northern Writers Awards mentor 2021

"Jade  writes thrilling and utterly fresh, formally inventive eco-poetry that doesn’t use the landscape to explore politics or the self but realises that the self, politically and physically, is intertwined with geography and in fact with the very nature of language itself" —  Andrew McMillan, Northern Writers Awards judge 2021


"Effortlessly switching from spoken-word poetry and folk lyrics accompanied by a gentle finger-picked guitar style, her pieces evoke the beauty and melancholy of the natural world and our place within it" — Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Ewan Carr

Jade Cuttle's memoir explores a concept of 'silthood', a term she coined to explore ancient connections between soil and self. The book draws on her passions for metal detecting, medieval re-enacting and mudlarking, and is currently being drafted with an editor at Faber & Faber through their Writing Chance Scheme, co-founded by Michael Sheen.
