Belinda Stiles is a current postgraduate student studying MA Creative Writing and Critical Life at the University of Leeds. After completing a poetry portfolio on creative identity for her undergraduate dissertation, she was awarded the John Younger Prize for Creative Writing and is now looking to publish this as her own first collection. These poems are an excerpt from a sonnet series created for her MA, mapping her journey around Italy through letters left to Juliet at the Casa Di Giulietta in Verona.
