I am a published poet and performer. I am currently giving a reading and Q & A session at Metropole University and am hoping to have some of my work in the University archives of Irish Literature. I am publishing a new and selected collection with Salmon – a leading publisher of poetry in Ireland. I have also got a pamphlet being published by Pighog on the theme of Brighton, for which I am working with a local photographer.
I have used DAOs New Voices programme mainly as a vehicle for reflection on development of my one-woman show Altered Egos. I have enjoyed using a DAO blog to have 'conversations' with my characters.
Altered Egos was first performed in the 2010 Brighton Fringe Festival where it received runner-up in the Latest Awards for Best Literary /Performance event. I have recently been awarded a Grants 4 Arts Award to develop the show and to tour the work nationally.
