writes, sings, and hopes to see a whale in real life. In the meantime she is learning to roller skate and working towards a BA at Goldsmiths, University of London. Before this, she earned a Higher National Diploma in Contemporary Music Performance from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.
She volunteers at We Care Foodbank & Charity Shop, a grassroots independent foodbank and part of the Kath Duncan Equality & Civil Rights Network. She has previously been on staff at Lesflicks, a platform for sapphic on-screen content, where she mostly contributed reviews, articles, and closed captions; Monstering, a magazine by and for disabled women and non-binary people, where she read submissions; and Winter Tangerine Review, where she is most proud of having mentored young, queer poets for the We Sweat Honeysuckle summer workshop series.
Her poems have been nominated for multiple Pushcart Prizes and Best of the Net Awards, and in 2021 she was longlisted for Palette Poetry’s Emerging Poet Prize (judged by Kelli Russell Agadon) and Foundlings Press’ Ralph Angel Poetry Prize (judged by Mary Ruefle). She has almost finished the manuscript for her debut pamphlet and hopes that her dream press will publish it.
If you meet her at a (zoom?) party, she will tell you she is Mad, gay, Jewish, and an identical twin. Ask her about space-hopper jousting, and/or the proper etiquette for transporting snails to safety after rain.
