I am a graduate from The University of East Anglia, with a BA in American Literature with 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. Please have a look at my blog entries below :-) I hope you enjoy them!
