I write poetry to make sense of my experiences as a woman. I share it because I believe the act of listening & experiencing to be healing. I write about the idea of femininity, beauty standards, sexuality, sisterhood, friendship, the idea of competition that is planted into our psyches, self-awareness, nature and vulnerability.
I run a monthly spoken word night at The Jacaranda, Liverpool called Rhymes & Records which has been going for one year (the same venue where The Beatles first played). I hold workshops in creative writing , performance styles and professional practice around the North West. I am releasing a book in 2017 called Love Poems I Wrote for Strangers. I run a coaching programme called Soar which helps emerging creatives find their footing. It is for innovators, pioneers, lost souls and artists. It is for those interested in forming projects, collectives, co-ops and communities. If you think this is you, get in touch.
Notable performances have been at Threshold Festival, Superhero’s of Slam and Liverpool Pride. My work has featured in What’s Your Pride Story by Writing on the Wall (poetry), Womanly Words by Shakti Woman (poetry) and Liverpool Luna Collective (blog post) I am a drama school graduate, National Youth Theatre of GB alumni and previous creative resident at mac birmingham.
