I am currently an MA student at UCL, studying Comparative Literature, and a graduate from The University of East Anglia, with a BA in American Literature and Creative Writing. Writing is my favourite thing to do, whether it's poetry, prose or essays. As soon as I had the cognitive motor skills to write, I did. It seems ironic that literature is my greatest love, seeing as I am dyslexic. As a young child, I was late to speak, read, and write - and when I did write the letters were the wrong way around, the words were mispelled, and the handwriting was abysmal. My dad even rewrote a little diary entry I made about my newly born brother for fear that nobody would understand the original in the future. I still have both versions and he was right, mine now looks like indecipherable gibberish. I also had a speech impediment so my older sister had to translate my monologues to my parents. But whether I was being understood or not, I had a vast imagination and a lot to say. I still do. Communication, in all its different forms, is invaluable. It has proven worth every bit of work it has been. The best part about writing poetry now is when I know that my message has been received by someone else. Prose are kind of my "thing". I write poetry for cathartic reasons. It comes over me as an all-consuming instinct that drives me to find the nearest pen at the most inconvenient times to spill it all out. Poetry helps me to deal with my feelings; oftentimes, my writing is deeply personal. Honestly, I enjoy writing poetry solely in an instinctual and emotional way, so I don't really spend any time reworking or editing my pieces. I'm sure they would benefit from me doing that but I've found that it removes my personal connection and passion for the pieces. So, please excuse my rough and ready poetry - I hope you enjoy it anyway. Please have a look at my blog entries below :-)
