Poetry

I am a published poet and spoken word artist working in the North East of England. My work primarily deals with themes of queerness, mental illness and nostalgia, often through the lenses of rock and roll, fantasy and monstrousness.

I am a Beeston Slam 2019 winner and accompanied the University of Leeds team to Unislam 2020, where I performed as a sacrificial poet.

My work has been featured in multiple Leeds-based publications including Good People Magazine and The Gryphon, and I was most recently published in Greenteeth Press’ anthology “Unhomely”, which you can purchase here.

I have also facilitated and led poetry workshops with young people between the ages of 13 – 22, on themes such as growing up, identity and queerness. I have also served as a judge for a local primary school’s annual poetry competition.
