Don’t let the hectic festive season stop you from writing. Let’s spend Christmas writing a page a day and getting creative.
I’ve been publishing poetry on a secret Instagram account for a while now. Partly because I’m embarrassed about how new I am to this art form, partly because I feel like an imposter, but mostly, because the idea of showing you my poems is like showing you my...
I’m writing this because I don’t think enough writers talk about changing lanes. About getting out of a niche they’ve built for themselves and doing the scary thing of trying to break out of it.
Integrating my newfound self into my work as a writer and course facilitator was a challenge. I realised that not everyone needed access to every facet of my life, but it felt wrong to compartmentalise my life into things that could and couldn’t be shared online.
I personally get a lot of anxious energy around the full moon, normally with headaches and chronic overthinking about how I’ve acted in the weeks previously (fun!)
Don’t be surprised if this leads to a lot of self-doubt in your creative abilities, fear of rejection or lack of energy as things come to a head. Hopefully, you’ll start to see some of your intentions manifest around this time.
I've always been terrified of getting into debt.Since my teenage years, my parents instilled in me the importance of seeking their support before resorting to credit cards or loans. On one hand, it demonstrated their generosity and love. However, now in my...
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about how hard it is to rest within the clutches of capitalism.

Sue has been in my life for the last few years, attending various writing workshops and cheering me on through Instagram. But last year, she reached out to work with me on a mentoring basis.
Recently, she offered to write down a testimonial for me and I wanted to share it so that if you’re thinking about working with me you can get an idea of what to expect.
I’m kinda feeling envigorated about writing which is perfect timing because I want to share 3 ways you can work with me on your writing over the next few months. Group writing and mentoring available. With payment plans!
Whether you’re a student, a professional, working from home, living the single life or keen to romanticise your relationship, I think actively creating a life that gets you excited is possible for everyone.
If I had to sum up the hardest part of my coming out experience, it could be encapsulated in one word: guilt. First off, I feel guilty that I've portrayed my coming out experience as a purely joyful event. Scroll through my Instagram feed from the last year and a half...
I've always loved reading non-fiction, but to be honest I've always felt more comfortable reading about the scientific aspect or mental health. Living with depression and anxiety made me interested in finding ways to heal, but since having a bit of a spiritual...
