Radio features, 2020

Continuing along the end of year round-up vibes of my last few blog posts, I realised I'd not linked to the radio shows I've featured on throughout the year... In the summer, I met Helen Brown, aka Dog In The Snow. We connected online, after realising we'd experienced racist behaviour and micro-aggressions from the same… Continue reading Radio features, 2020

‘Hope & Laundry’ – a poetic zine

Hope & Laundry is a zine about searching for change in the laundrettes of Brighton & Hove. It’s about following fear to find hope.

Day 0

Ondra and I were feeling overwhelmed.
