Gingernut Magazine

Gingernut Magazine is a beautiful new publication full to the brim with gorgeous illustrations, interviews, stories, poetry and much more. 

It is an absolute joy and priviledge to see one of my poems published in Issue Two.

'Why Mums are amazing' a brand new poetry zine by The Mum Poem Press

I’m over the moon that one of my poems was picked to feature in this beautiful poetry zine edited by the utterly amazing, award-winning poet Hollie McNish and published by The Mum Poet Press.

Lockdown

I try to stitch the pieces.
Fuse the fibres back together,
Of heartstrings that have been stretched,
All elasticity loosened.

The smallest things

The smallest things

And so it becomes the smallest of things,
The everyday,
Droplets of joy,
Squeezed out of the most mundane.
