Helen Moffett

Helen Moffett

Helen Moffett wears many hats: freelance writer, editor, academic, activist, researcher, trainer. Her academic writings include necessary but grim work on sexual violence. She balances this out by writing erotica as one-third of Helena S. Paige. She co-authored the late Bob Woolmer’s Art and Science of Cricket together with Prof Tim Noakes. She has also compiled three university textbooks on poetry and a fourth on academic writing, an anthology of South African landscape writing, and co-edited the anthology Stray to raise funds for TEARS. Her debut collection of poems, Strange Fruit, was published by Modjaji Books, and her second, Prunings, was published by uHlanga Press in 2016. Most recently, she has published 101 Water Wise Ways.
