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). 


Dancing Girl Press (Chicago, 2018)


'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.'
