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

My Heart Is Not A Home For Cowards – My Year In 100 Quotes

Gleðilegt nýtt ár from Iceland. I've never been into New Year in the typical sense. Saying 'Happy New Year' in English has left me cringing for the longest time. I'm not entirely sure why. Perhaps it's because my relationship with England is growing ever sourer as the years go on. I don't need to go… Continue reading My Heart Is Not A Home For Cowards – My Year In 100 Quotes

Wyrd Words & Effigies Interviews Mirusbella

I was having a dreadful day in the hours before I discovered Mirusbella on YouTube and her gorgeous cover of Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger. As I slipped away into the song, life didn't seem so terrible anymore. I may have even smiled. Hailing from Germany, this multi-talented, mystifying artist has been delighting me with her art… Continue reading Wyrd Words & Effigies Interviews Mirusbella

An Interview With Beyond Man

This interview was originally posted on A Hex On Your Head, but I figured it could do with a share here too, as I know some of my wolf pack will appreciate it. Well, isn’t this fucking something! We got Beyond Man for you. A few weeks ago, I threw an email at Meghan with… Continue reading An Interview With Beyond Man

Your Darkness Is Welcome Here

What you are about to read is profound. Extremely fucking profound. It’s probably one of the most profound pieces of writing I’ve read in my 34 (I’m not 35 in September, you are) years. I came across it while reading Creatrix: She Who Makes by Lucy H Pearce. It’s written by a lady called Dawn Conlan-Grant. I’ve tried to… Continue reading Your Darkness Is Welcome Here

A Pack To Howl With

I've been feeling abysmal since early afternoon. It felt like death was waiting with his door open. That might sound like I'm overly dramatic, but for about two hours, I felt sick, so sick. I left a friend a voice message, and I broke down. I couldn't not cry. And my stomach, my god-forsaken stomach,… Continue reading A Pack To Howl With

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
