Queercon 2023 was an absolutely incredible event, and I was so happy to perform alongside such a wide array of wonderfully talented queer performers!

After a year long hiatus, I'm finally back to performing at Open Mics and other events - and not only that, but I've spread my wings and stepped (or should that be flown?) outside my comfort zone by performing in London and Aberystwyth.

Hopefully 2023 will have plentiful opportunities to perform, because I've kept writing throughout 2022 and I'm excited to share my new pieces!

Anthology Release

I'm so very pleased to note the release of the Culture Matters 'Land of Change' anthology, curated by Dr Gemma June Howell and including my poem 'Child'. 

I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this anthology, which includes some absolutely fantastic pieces, written by an array of poets I'm honoured to be printed alongside, which really drive to the core of social inequality and strife in our society.

I hope you enjoy.

I meant to post this piece for Transgender Day of Remembrance 2021 on Saturday, but unfortunately a few errant gremlins managed to get into my laptop and made me miss it.

Nevertheless, this is an important topic, and I wanted to add my voice to it - every year, more and more transgender people are murdered or violently attacked for no other reason than the fact that they are trans. Many others commit suicide or succumb to self harm.

Despite this, promised, long overdo reforms of the systems supposedly in place to guide through transition have been scrapped, and hate speech against transgender people is becoming commonplace.

We need to continue to stand in protest, to continue to push the government to give us the support and protections we need. We need to keep fighting, whenever and wherever we can, so that the trans folx of the next generation don't have to face the evils we have.

I am absolutely ecstatic to have reached the final four in the Frequency House Swansea Poetry slam - my first in-person poetry slam!

Video of my performances will be on YouTube shortly.

I have uploaded a new visual poem, entitled 'Hello' to my Facebook.

Here's a little piece for anyone who's ever felt too shy or insecure to tell someone how they feel. It's simply called 'Hello.'

In celebration of the first ever International Asexuality Day, 6th April 2021, I thought I'd share a video of my performance of my poem 'Daddy Issues' at the Scratch the Mic open mic just a few months before Covid shut down the world.

In this poem, I talk about my experiences as an Asexual person, and there are references to abuse and sexual harassment.

I hope you like it!

I have uploaded a new visual poem, entitled 'Borderline Tides' to my Facebook.

Sometimes, when you're suffering with Borderline Personality Disorder, it can be impossible to tell how any given event can influence your moods; sometimes a trivial or simple thing can send your mood plummeting into utter despair, whilst at other times even a significant issue can seem as though it is hardly worth caring about. I tried to channel that chaotic shifting of moods into this poem, which I've titled 'Borderline Tides'.

Last night, I was interviewed by photographer Richard Ansett, who I worked with last year to produce a set of images displaying the physical impact of mental health issues.

Over the course of this very emotional interview, I spoke at length about my own mental health issues, which have had a significant impact on my poetry, and more generally about the widespread mental health issues which are impacting on so many people in our society.

I also read a piece of my poetry, 'Freakshow', and was joined by my cat, Brandy, who obviously was the star of the show.

I've just uploaded a new poem to Facebook, entitled 'The Birthday Girl.'

This poem addresses an all too common component of mental health issues that often results in events that should have been celebrations seeming like daunting, or even insurmountable, obstacles.

I hope you enjoy it.

A very belated Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful holiday period.

While once more the tech support Gremlins meant that December's Poetry Corner wasn't livestreamed to Facebook as expected, the event itself went ahead, and we were graced with wonderful performances from Cath Elms, Rhoda Thomas, Tim Evans, and Lucy Luca as well as a performance by myself.

The whole event has now been published on my Youtube channel so you catch it at your convenience.

Online poetry evening - 7:30pm Friday 6th November

In this dark and oppressive  time, many of us are struggling to find a glimmer of light and hope to keep us going, and what better way to ease the gloom for at least a little while than an evening of poetry, entertainment and camaraderie?

As a result, I will be hosting the first ever Poetry Corner, an online gathering of poets and literature fans, at 7:30pm on Friday 6th November. 

All are welcome to participate and share a song, short story, or even a song, and those who don't feel like performing are more than welcome to observe and share in the atmosphere.

Interested? Follow the link below for the event page, and I look forward to seeing you all on the night.
