Emma Jones has won awards in Australia for her poetry
A new poet in residence is to take up a post with the Wordsworth Trust in Cumbria.
Australian-born Emma Jones will be the 15th poet to take up the year-long role, close to where Wordsworth lived at Dove Cottage in Grasmere.
The post has been funded by the Arts Council and the Wordsworth Trust.
Ms Jones will be involved in several projects for the trust, including hosting workshops for up-and-coming writers from around the country.
Ms Jones, who was born and raised in Sydney, had her first collection of poems, The Striped World, published in February this year.
In 2005 she won the Newcastle Poetry Prize, Australia's biggest prize for a single poem, and was also the recipient of an emerging writer's grant from the Australia Council for the Arts.
She recently completed a PhD in English from the University of Cambridge.
