Diane Pacitti (1948, London) worked as a Co-ordinator of community education and became a literature tutor after gaining an M.Phil. at Nottingham University.
Her writing explores migration, identity, and power relationships.
In 2004, she combined her poems with the drawings of her husband Antonio Pacitti in the publication Guantanamo, described by the Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter as ‘deeply impressive and very important.’
Her poetry has been published in Third Way and In Memoriam, been shortlisted for the Jane Martin poetry prize at Girton College and was awarded first prize for Poetry by the Bronte Society in 2014.
Since Antonio Pacitti’s death in 2009, Diane Pacitti has curated and presented his artworks within a variety of narratives and situations, working with creative partners including Glasgow University Memorial Chapel, Cultural Documents (Cerasuolo, Italy), Bradford Cathedral and others.
Between Two States is her first novel.
