I started writing after taking a career break in 2019.
And I started with a bold move.
I wrote, produced and performed a one woman show at the Greater Manchester Fringe.
Whilst working out how to write, put on and perform a show I met some 'proper' writers and performers who suggested a bit of performance practice 'might be a good idea' before doing a full show.
This advice led me to the amazing spoken word scene of Manchester and the North West, which in turn has led to me finding my poetic voice and confidence to share my work on social media, submit my poetry to anthologies, zines, podcasts, and even the BBC.
My debut poetry collection, Lockdown Life, A Rollercoaster of Emotions was published by Master House Publishing on 31 May 2021.
