Ama Bolton is a poet and bookbinder living in Somerset. All her life she made up songs and verses. For years she read and listened to poetry and wrote almost in isolation. She knew Adrian Henri but never dared show him her writing. When she moved to Wells from Liverpool in the early 1980s she joined a group of poets who critiqued one another’s work, and from that time she began to call herself a poet. Around 20 years ago Jane Williams and Ama started the Wells Fountain Poets, who meet monthly.
