I’m passionate about inclusion and storytelling. When not gainfully employed to facilitate the former I indulge in the latter.
My poetry has been published online on I am not a silent poet and in print within the collection A Page to Remember (Doodlerat Publishing). Substitution was placed on the longlist of the Fish Publishing International Poetry Contest 2015. At midnight was highly commended in the Awakenings competition on Poem Pigeon.
More recently, my prose poem Bottling was published within the online literary journal 100 Word Story.
I’m delighted that my words have also been included in a number of community arts projects. My short play Suitcase Packed With Whispers was performed behind Door 18 of the Folkestone Living Advent Calendar Festival 2015.This site specific piece reflects on the impact of the Tontine Street bombing during WW1 on local residents.
My words and visuals were also incorporated into a beautiful short film called The Weathertime Project (Dover Arts Development), a collaboration of 20+ artists based in both Folkestone and Calais which came to fruition in 2016. The film was shown on DFSF ferries through the summer of 2016.
May 2017 has been a real highlight as I was offered the opportunity to write alongside The Sick of The Fringe team to produce Diagnoses at the Normal? Festival of the Brain.
Thanks for visiting.
