Poet, teacher, story collector.
I love collecting snippets of stories and creating snapshots of experience. During the pandemic, I revisited some draft poems that I had written about women. They still very much resonated with me, and so I set about writing a little collection, which has been long in the making!
The poems are a reflection of the often complex and unpredictable situations women can find themselves in. They are all true experiences and are written without judgement. I hope that I have also shown strength and varying degrees of resolution for the women within the collection.
