About Me

This year, I became a guest poetry facilitator with Derbyshire Writing School and I’m over the moon to be running such exciting workshops and courses with this wonderful family run creative business. I was invited on Episode 13 of their podcast to discuss how to begin with poetry. You can listen back here: PODCAST 

I have been commissioned by Shottle Hall to write a love poem for their wedding magazine and by Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site to highlight overlooked women’s stories in Derby history. You can watch the video for Tales of Derby Women Past below.

I’m currently working on my second poetry collection which explores my journey with chronic illness.

When I’m not writing, you can find me drinking tea and dabbling in a few different books with a bag of snacks in hand.

If you would like to book me for a performance, as a facilitator or commission me to write a poem, please get in touch.
