soul survival guide

Hello! I'm Ali Davenport, writer, poet, and soul-searcher from Manchester, England. I love asking questions - and exploring possible answers! 

I've written a book and some other pieces, including a pocketbook of poetry about the pandemic and Days of Grace. My latest work is poem The Song of Ryebank Fields, a call to the City of Manchester. You can download all my work for free on this page - it's my gift to the world! See the sort of stuff I do in poetry events and other activities. You can read about me and my writing in my pieces for 2022's National Poetry Day and World Mental Health Day
