I am a published poet and spoken word artist currently working in the North East of England. My work primarily draws from my working-class upbringing in Yorkshire and early experiences with the goth scene, with themes of queerness, mental illness and rock-and-roll, mediated through the idyllic, pastoral and numinous.
I am a winner of the 2019 Beeston Slam, a member of the 2018 Slam of the North winning team, and in 2020, performed at Unislam as a sacrificial poet alongside the Leeds Varsity team. I also was crowned Huddersfield Lit Fest Slam Champion in 2022.
My work was most recently commended by the Hive Young Poets Competition, and you can view my most recent online placements below. I have also released a trio of digital poetry zines entitled “A Posy for Energy”, “A Posy for Comfort” and “A Posy For Wonder”, 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, politics and queerness. I have also served as a judge for a local primary school’s annual poetry competition.
