36 Today But In Dog Years I’m Dead

It's most certainly been a day. Not the happiest birthday I've ever had, nor the saddest. I was going to write a book-length post about 36 things I've learned in the 36 years I've been alive. But I've probably not learned enough to be qualified to write such a thing, especially considering my track record… Continue reading 36 Today But In Dog Years I’m Dead

Cunning Folk Magazine : The Air Issue

I was depressed and suicidal when the debut issue of Cunning Folk emerged a few years ago. I wanted it badly. But I didn't buy it. It was around £15 or so, with the postage and packing and the ever-so-miserable voice in my ever-so-heavy head said I couldn't afford it. I watched, from a distance, as this new… Continue reading Cunning Folk Magazine : The Air Issue

The Nottingham Horror Collective Zine : The High Priestess Issue

Halló, Halló. I bet you've been wondering if I'd show up around here again, haven't you? Or not. I'd like to think you have. Since I last wrote back in January, life has been diff-i-cult. I've been dealing with the after effects of Covid, my depression awoke from its not-long-enough slumber and life in England has… Continue reading The Nottingham Horror Collective Zine : The High Priestess Issue

My Favourite Books From 2021 – Part Three

Ah fuck. I started this entry much later than I initially planned. I have a good excuse, though. I've been working on my Year Compass for most of the day and was determined to get it completed. Curious? You can download your Year Compass here. It'll be beneficial if you're still unsure about what you… Continue reading My Favourite Books From 2021 – Part Three

My Favourite Books From 2021 – Part Two

I have hauled myself away from Etsy - where I've been looking at chainmail bras and swords - to write this post. I've lit a candle and put on Darkher's gorgeous new song Lowly Weep in an attempt to focus my fluttering attention span. It's getting somewhat ridiculous now, and it's starting to worry me.… Continue reading My Favourite Books From 2021 – Part Two

My Favourite Books From 2021 – Part One

I know we're almost into the end of January, but this month of the Wolf Moon has been a bit of a bitch, and I'm permitting myself to post my 2021 reflections later than is commonly expected by the internet. In January 2021, I set out to read 100 books during the year, as is… Continue reading My Favourite Books From 2021 – Part One

100 Good Things From 2021

This self-portrait was taken on my 35th birthday in Whitby. I was almost caught by the tide about half an hour before this photo was shot. Venturing into nude self-portraiture. It still feels madly surreal to know how far I went with this. This quote from one of my favourite authors, Lucy H Pearce. "I am she who… Continue reading 100 Good Things From 2021

People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

I would like to introduce you to the cover of my upcoming poetry collection, People of the Sea Ice. The image is c.1900s-1910s and was photographed by Whitney's Photographic Studio (established in 1904). This collection is the culmination of many months of hard work. It's been the most challenging collection to write to date, as… Continue reading People Of The Sea Ice – My Upcoming Book

Go Not Near Her She Is Of Witching Way – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

For weeks and weeks and weeks, I’ve been hounding myself to go back through my notebooks and copy out everything significant. I finally got around to doing it today but only managed to plough through three of five. I’m going to make an attempt (so no promises!) to try and do a ‘Things From The Pages… Continue reading Go Not Near Her She Is Of Witching Way – Things From The Pages Of My Notebook

Just So You Know, Some Wyrd Stuff Is Going On

I had planned for this post to be a good ol' ramble about how social media is treating me since I returned the other day, but I'm saving it for another time. A: because I want to go a full week before reporting on the pitfalls and positives of being back. And B: because I… Continue reading Just So You Know, Some Wyrd Stuff Is Going On
