Meet the Indigo Dream Team

Both published authors, Ronnie Goodyer and Dawn Bauling formed Indigo Dreams in 2009. They bring with them a breadth of knowledge and understanding about what it means to be a published author today, and how to enjoy it to the max.

They live in a wooden house in the middle of Cookworthy Forest, Devon with their rescue blue merle collie, Mist.

Dawn Bauling is a graduate in both English and Library Science. She has won several poetry awards, been widely published in the poetry press and has two published collections: ‘Loud Voices in the Quiet Child’ (2008) and ‘Shippen’ (2014). She is also so-author of 'Forest, moor or less', a poetry collaboration with partner, Ronnie. Dawn is co-director of Indigo Dreams, is editor of Sarasvati (now retired!) and The Dawntreader magazines. Along with Ronnie, she was awarded the Ted Slade Award for Services to Poetry in 2015 and then again in 2023. She also works as Media Officer for the NHS and is a BBC 500 Words Official Judge.
