I teach English at a secondary school in Elephant and Castle, where I co-founded the youth poetry collective Globe Poets in 2013. I am a relatively new member of the Labour Party, but have been active in various social movements for the last 6 years.
I have created this blog as I want a space to record my experiences across three important, interconnected areas of my life: politics, poetry and teaching.
I am not going to edit posts too heavily as intense self-critique is what has put a block on my writing in the past, but I will try as far as possible to avoid long-winded sentences, unintentional ‘alternative facts’ and hyperbole.
