Alex Pryce is currently reading for a DPhil in English at Wadham College, Oxford. Her thesis research interrogates issues of feminism, tradition and influence in contemporary Northern Irish poetry, with a focus on the relationship between the 1960s and 1970s generations and more recent women poets.

Since 2010, Alex has served on the steering group of the Postgraduate Contemporary Women’s Writing Network. She also frequently reviews contemporary poetry for magazines and journals including Poetry Review, Poetry London and New Walk. Alex also publishes her own poetry in reputable magazines, is an editor of the Poetry Archive and runs the national poetry podcasting website PoetCasting.

Currently she is working as part of the team involved in the C21 Scholar Project; a skills development programme for graduate students and a hub for digital humanities resources.
