I'm hoping to start holding 'Poetry for the Soul' shares in my local community. These will be like the conversations I started before the pandemic - but with poetry! 

'we're all new to this' poetry trail - sept 20

In September 20, I put my poems around Northenden, creating a poetry trail for the 'Up Your Street' event.

During the pandemic, Wythenshawe Good Neighbours produced a 'My Resilience Matters' pack with older people in the area. Snippets from my 'pandemic a-z' and 'we're all new to this' appear in it. Here I am at Wythenshawe AFC for the launch, where I shared some of my poems. 

poetry & story share - oct 21 

I hosted a 'Poetry & Story Share' as part of Northenden's first ever arts festival on Thursday 28th October. As part of this, I shared some of the brand new poems from my second collection.
