Geraldine is a poet and creative writing tutor. Passing Through (Indigo Dreams Pubs. 2018) is the most recent of her three collections.

In 2015 she celebrated 10 years of poetry readings across America. 2019 sees her returning to the US to read in New York and the Mid West.

Reviews on her poetry:

In her ‘love letter to Cumbria’, Geraldine Green weaves together strands of auto-biography, living depictions both of landscape and of inward journeying, moments of revelation always grounded in the actual and the observed, and brings all these qualities together in one sweeping compass to create a volume rich in sensory and meditative experience – Penelope Shuttle

Geraldine’s poetry and prose explores and captures the feel, texture, smell of natural beauty where ever it is to be found. It’s especially evocative of her own home ground on the south coast of Cumbria overlooking Morecambe Bay, but it ranges across the world following her own journeys - Sir Chris Bonington

Movement is the essence of Geraldine Green's poetry: the cadence of language evoking then becoming experience in poems that are motile under the skin of place and memory. This is a sensual and rich collection from a poet who pierces the membrane between self and subject with shape-shifting energy - Graham Mort

You feel you are walking with the poet along her shores and hills, following her clear-eyed gaze ‘in the rough wet nose of the lonely wind’ - Pippa Little.
