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. My latest work is a poetry collection - days of grace. 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.

In June 2022, I gave a talk about connection at the first ever TEDx Warrington. Here's the video of my talk! Find out more here

Connection Fest 

In December 2020, I created Connection Fest with the support of the Camerados. This was a month-long online festival exploring and celebrating connection and what it means to us, especially at this time. Find out more here. 

Poetry Soul Train was a 24hr Twitterfest starting at 8pm on New Year's Eve 2021.The idea was to send words around the world celebrating being human. Supported by the Camerados, I came up with the idea as part of the 'Xmas Can Be Crap' activities. Find out more here.
