On the weekend I experimented with leaf printing, using leaves from my parents’ garden to imprint distinctive shapes and colours onto fabric. I was really impressed with some of the outcomes: read more about them, and how to have a go yourself, below!Continue reading “Blog: Leaf Printing”
I am so delighted to announce that I am now an Assistant Poetry Editor for the online magazine Mookychick! The magazine centres around themes of womanhood and feminism, literature and art, lifestyle, well-being, and magic, and publishes a variety of things from artwork to reviews, articles to tutorials.
Mookychick is run by a wonderful collective of womxn, and I am so happy to be joining the team. While I work on balancing my own writing alongside my work and studies, I really wanted something to help me feel a little more connected to the poetry world, and put my experience of editing to good use. This new role is precisely what I was seeking, and I’m excited to see where this journey takes me!
Though times are uncertain and events have been cancelled, I find myself with more time on my hands than usual. I want to dedicate some of this time to working on this website, to write more about what’s going on in my world poetry-wise, and to take you a little further into my creative practice.
I will be starting a few new ‘threads’, and one of these will be ‘throwbacks’: little glimpses back along my poetry journey thus far. This will hopefully fill out my story from what is currently on my website (which covers the publication of Bella onwards), and give me a chance to reflect on how far I’ve come, and where I might go next.
Throwbacks will be published every Thursday, starting this Thursday, at least for the next couple of months. The other threads will be announced soon!
