OPEN MIC POETRY
On Wednesday 2 May 2018 7.30pm I will be reading from my debut pamphlet Bloodlines at Open Mic Poetry at the Jubilee Hall, New Park Centre, Chichester. Poet, Mandy Pannett will also read from her extensive back catalogue. There will also be an open mic. This event forms part of the South Downs Poetry Festival 2018.

Great news! My debut pamphlet, Bloodlines is now available to order here.
Bloodlines is a collection of poems that explore a woman’s experience of growing up without a father. The collection is chronologically arranged, beginning in childhood and continuing into adulthood. Bloodlines engages with themes of loss, abandonment, memory, landscape, cultural disinheritance, and biological inheritance.
Between the 23rd October – 6th November, I researched and wrote at the Museum of Motherhood (MOM) in St.Petersburg, Florida. During my residency, I responded creatively to MOM’s wealth of exhibits and art which incorporated a range of mothering concepts, and inspired me to embody my own matrifocal experience through poetry.
