Dirty, Gifted & Welsh - A home for my tribe.

Dirty. Raw. That’s how I felt yesterday.Gifted for sharing and having the opportunity to listen.And proud to my core for being Welsh and for Wales. When the world around us is telling us that art is dead or that we – as creatives – are superfluous it becomes more important for us to get together on mass and prove them wrong. That is what yesterday was for me. Co-hosting the Scratch stage with the wonderful Sophie McKeand and watching the sea of people pop in and out of the space and share was…See More

It's still difficult  to put into words what my week at the Roundhouse has meant to me. I spent half term creating poetry with nine beautiful people. We participated in…

A Polarbear, Eight Poets and Copious Amounts of Coffee

It sounds a bit far fetched I suppose, but that is the best way to describe our weekend in the house of Literary Terms.
