I am a poet from Hertfordshire, who now lives in North London. I have a Masters in Creative and Life Writing from Goldsmiths where I specialised in Poetry. General themes in my work tend to be the past, geography, Scandinavia, and issues of sexuality and identity. Influences are Adrienne Rich, Jane Hirshfield, Tomas Tranströmer, Miroslav Holub, Sylvia Plath.
My work has been featured in the magazines Brittle Star, Iota, RAUM and Under the Radar. Several of my poems were published in the Goldfish 2: An Anthology of Writing from Goldsmiths.
In May 2016 was I very honoured to be a speaker at the sixth annual Boring Conference. A day-long fiesta of impossibly dull subjects that, on closer inspection, reveal themselves to be fascinating, I was proud to present a talk on Paper Bags from Independent Bookshops, a version of which you can read here.
For Spring/Summer 2016 I was a poet-in-residence in a London garden as part of the 2016 Re-Mixed Borders scheme run by The Poetry School and London Parks and Gardens Trust. Here is my write up of the experience.
I write reviews of my tea experiences over on Tea With Eddus, where I’m currently focussing on reviewing all the English Breakfast cuppas I can buy from cafes in London (and beyond!) I am also very lucky to be part of an amazing Brunch Club group which writes reviews of Brunch venues in London, here
I can be found on Twitter here, where I mainly communicate in drag queen gifs and emoji.
