I am a poet, writer and filmmaker. I write about misogyny, queerness, PTSD, sexual trauma, chronic illness, mythology and bats.
I was in the 2022-23 cohort of The London Library's Emerging Writers Programme. I am an alum of the Barbican Young Poets and the Writing Squad. I was the 2020 winner of the Oxford Brookes International Poetry Competition. My debut pamphlet, He Said I Was a Peach, is out now with ignitionpress. Read more about my work in poetry.
In 2021 I directed my first short film, You Look Fine, which was awarded Best Writer at BFI Future Film Festival and has screened at numerous Academy Award and BAFTA-recognised festivals across Europe. My second film project, The Styx, in development, is supported by Arts Council England. Read more about my work in film.
I was the founder of Thorn, a cross-disciplinary arts collective in Durham, which ran from 2015 — 2021. Read more about my arts facilitation work.
