Ruth's poetry collection Queen, Jewel, Mistress was published by Eyewear Publishing 2015. Alison Weir wrote that, Ruth Stacey's poems are "exceptional." They evoke voices long silenced, and the very essence of these past lives and the ages in which they were lived. Her recent pamphlet,Inheritance, was published by Mothers Milk Books 2017. A duet with another poet, Katy Wareham Morris, it explored 19th century experience of motherhood, contrasted with a 21st century mother's voice. Inheritance won Best Collaborative Work at the 2018 Saboteur Awards.
Forthcoming poetry collection, How to Wear Grunge, will be available from Knives, Forks & Spoons press Autumn 2018. Two of the poems from that collection are displayed as part of the 2018/19 Blackpool Illuminations.
