Allographic; Hammer & Tongue Cambridge

Various art forms

I am a peripatetic, percussive performance poet by night, and a professional projector by day. I run the Cambridge branch of the Hammer & Tongue slam series, and my own poetry label Allographic (which functions as a small press and a platform for performers), along with directing the Spoken Word section of The Free Fringe in Edinburgh 2013-14, returning again in 2016. I am a classically-trained singer, a self-taught drummer, a bit of a mumbler sometimes, and speak with my hands. In 2014, I “won” the Edinburgh Fringe Anti-Slam (where the worst poem and performance with the lowest points wins a terrible prize).

“Her poetry combines lyrical flair with a solid emotional core… there is no one quite like her” (Tim Clare).
