The following content is a compiled archive of the work that I have had published, either under my given name, or my pseudonym, including poetry, prose, blog posts and reviews.
This work was produced as part of a collaboration, entitled No Cape Required. This was between the online retailer, Zappos, the charity, Meals on Wheels, and the collaborative art-sharing platform, HITRecord. From which, the cine-poem, We See You came to be. This cine-poem was derived from the stories of twenty contributors to a wider call for personal stories about experiences with or involving the key workers that were overlooked as heroes in the Covid19 pandemic. My anecdote, a brief letter to my mother, aptly entitled, Thanks Mum, inspired part of this poem, where the efforts of teachers, often discounted or dismissed by the governments of the time, were commended. The video which derived from the collaboration was released in July 2020, and contributors were later paid for their efforts in February 2021. The full cine-poem is available to view at the above link, and my particular contribution separately under its original title.
