What I’m Doing Now

My current creative focus is centred around these two things:

– writing my first poetry book. It explores themes of grief, inter-generational trauma & resilience, healing & identity.

– developing, fundraising and running Athlone Young Poets – a youth poetry programme based at a high school, in Cape Town. We use poetry to get young people to explore & write their own family & community histories. I work with 12–15 students over three years.

These are my priorities. I’m sharing this so you know what my current creative priorities and interests are. If I receive a request for work that is too far from my area of interest, I will most likely say no. However, if you have a project, idea or request that speaks to the themes I am exploring in my book please get in touch. Also, if you would like to book me to work with your group of high school or university students, drop me an email, I’d love to hear from you.
