Writing 

My debut poetry pamphlet BLUE SHEILA was published by dancing girl press in 2018 and was launched at the Vortex Jazz Club in London, in a collaborative performance that included soundscapes, voicework and song. 

My pamphlet I am Anastasia Romanov is forthcoming with Making Books in 2020. 

 

My writing has appeared in Hotel, Zeno Press, A Glimpse Of, Orlando, Hotdog, Nuovi Argomenti and more; has been translated into Russian and features in anthologies including Wretched Strangers (Boiler House Press 2018) and Quello che hai amato (UTET 2015).

'The story of Sheila and her slow-burning emancipation is a performance score. Marcel is violent. Ava is tender and flippant. The chorus reads the news and speaks the jazz tongue. Sheila needs to cross.'
