Therese Lloyd’s first full-length poetry collection, Other Animals, was published by VUP in 2013, and her second collection The Facts (VUP, 2018) was a finalist at the 2019 Ockham NZ Book Awards.

She was awarded a PhD in Creative Writing in 2017 from Victoria University where her research focus was ekphrasis, poetry about visual art.

In 2018 she was the Writer in Residence at the University of Waikato, and when she moved back to Wellington, she founded the Pegasus Poetry Reading Series at Pegasus Books in Wellington.

Last year she taught the undergraduate poetry course at Victoria University’s International Institute of Modern Letters and prior to that taught the poetry module at Te Auaha-NZ Institute of Creativity.
