S.J. Perillo is a poet and botanist. S.J. lives and works in London and had another animal poem, ‘Whale-cloud’, published in Fiona Waters’ anthology, Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright! ‘Tightrope Walk Team’ is one of S.J.’s favourite poems.

S.J is working on illustrations for a first poetry collection, but “drawing can be harder than writing!”
