LAST NIGHT'S THOUGHTS
My most recent of collection of poetry, published in September 2017, continues from the previous collection's (From One So Young, Maybe I'm Losing It) themes, reflecting on the concepts of love, youth, illness and adulthood. Diving into the surreal and continued introspection, this collection is about growth, and the next steps a young adult must take to evolve.
MAYBE I'M LOSING IT
In December 2016, I released a wider, more complex and darker collection of poetry, analysing struggles with mental health and modern day complexities with raw and guttural prose. This collection is a tough but honest deconstruction of the anxieties and black holes depression can cause.
ALL THE LITTLE TOWNS
The second story I wrote, released in April 2016, was written to help fund-raise for Young Minds Charity. It is an emotional and heartfelt tale about growth and overcoming struggles, telling the story of Frank, a pub owner who suffers from anxiety and has settled within his small hometown, unaware of the tightening web that grips around his potential. But then he meets Amelia.
Although the fundraiser is now closed, I encourage you to PLEASE VISIT AND DONATE to Young Minds Charity, a wonderful organisation helping young people feel supported and empowered, whatever the challenge.
FROM ONE SO YOUNG
Published in March 2016, my debut poetry collection contains initial work stemming back to 2013. Thematically focusing on youth culture, the primitive nature of some of the poetry is left unaltered to exemplify the original, authentic emotions felt during its creation.
A SIGN OF SANITY
My first short story, published in September 2015, prior to the start of my second year of University. Following a conversation between two generations of men at a bar, the story discusses the loss of innocence, generational differences, the complications of young romance, and the urgency of time.
As a completed work, this is my literacy starting point, not flawless but promising.
