Hello Everyone, thanks for checking out my bio. I write poetry and fiction influenced by life and a love for music of the heavier variety. My first pamphlet or mini anthology is called The Will To Gig. "...it has a light touch, and rhymes give it a structure that stops it barrelling off into an enthusiastic, untamed epic. Like the bands Ghislena follows, these poems have the rawness and energy of a live performance. The Will to Gig is a good demo EP that would have a music journo place the band on a ‘one to watch, especially live’ list." - Sabotage Reviews My work has been published online by 99Fiction.net, Poetry Space Ltd and Dog-Ear magazine and was also featured in the BritMums Poetry&Prose Round Up When I am not writing, working or looking after my family, I frequent small sweaty venues in London to see noisy bands wearing plugs in my ears. Open mic nights are also on my agenda and if I can control my nerves and blind panic, I might get up and read, (without plugs in my ears).
For three samples of my work head to Soundcloud for a listen at this address: https://soundcloud.com/anna-ghislena Or look me up on You Tube where a few videos have been uploaded of my poems, 'We Are The Mums' and 'The Cucumber Plot'
