Sticky One 17/11/22

17/11/22 This month I wanted to do something a little bit different for the newsletter. I am posting a short story, piece of prose I wrote a few months ago, called 'Sticky One'.

22 For 22 17/10/22

17/10/22 I turned twenty-two nine days ago. We celebrated the new age with a Britney Spears themed party, bare country music and a lovelee, good time between friends. Each year after my birthday I use my newsletter to talk about some things I’ve learnt the past three-sixty-five, and this one has been a big cluster [...]

Learn As I Listen 17/09/22

17/05/2022 I’ve recorded the EP! FINALLY! My seven piece band and I spent the 16th and 17th of April in Satellite Studios, Enfield, securing our months of hard work into a fixed project that we can share with the world. I feel so proud, and so excited.  After going to an Orii Jam in Hackney [...]

Dress Code: No (Victim)Hoods 17/02/22

17/02/22 I have been a victim. Of all sorts. I have suffered, and I do have trauma to tell. I have past instances that I recall sometimes and only in retrospect understand that they led to other traumas occurring. As a woman, I understand I have a different place in society than men. As a [...]
