My most recent collection The Tempest Prognosticator is published by Salt in the UK and Random Umuzi in South Africa. My earlier collection A Fold in the Map is published by Salt in the UK and Jacana in South Africa. You can read more about these books and other publications (like joint work on the sinking of RMS Titanic, The Debris Field, published by Sidekick Books) here, along with poems, details of forthcoming readings and the odd snippet of news (for more, you can visit isobeldixon.tumblr.com).
I am currently working on a collaboration with Scottish artist Douglas Robertson, inspired by DH Lawrence's poems in Birds, Beasts and Flowers. More detail and images can be found here and in forthcoming journal publications.

Interview on LitNet, May 2013
The Tempest Prognosticator
A Fold in the Map:
Smart-1 has landed in the Lake of Excellence;
the no-frills flights shuttle the continents.
I’m sore that Pluto’s been demoted, just a dwarf:
this planetary reshuffling fills me with anxiety.
Don’t let’s push the envelope: stay home.
Who needs to know the surface of the moon?
From here, and on the screens, we see it fine,
can count our blessings and the new array,
and work out how to change the rhyme
that fixed the bygone order in our minds.
Sun, moon and stars come tumbling down.
We will get used to it in time.
