I'm Ali Davenport, writer 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, which you can download for free. My latest work is a new poetry collection - days of grace. You can find out more about me here and see the sort of stuff I do in events, including the recent Poetry Soul Train.

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.
