Hashtag Nofilter

Finally… (And I say finally because we have been trying to finish some kick-off content since mid-August!)…working with creative partner in crime, copywriter and social entrepreneur, the mighty Justine Gaubert – it’s great to say – www.hastagnolfiter is now live. The project is a space for ideas, research, musings, interviews and anything else that might crop up, or take our interest, in the realm of neurodiversity – particularly relating to females and creativity. If any of that sounds of interest, please check it out. You can listen to our intro podcast at the bottom of this post.

I haven’t blogged in a while because autumn is always a super busy time for me. The Hive project has been refunded (yeh!) and there’s a lot to get off the ground there, and it’s the annual Youth Word Up project that I deliver for Off the Shelf Festival of Words – this year will be its 7th year, which I can’t believe!

With HashtagNofilter now up and running, it’s time to start thinking about my writing again which has taken a back seat for quite a while. I’ve got a poetry getaway planned for early November which I’m so glad I spent the time to sort before I got busy. I knew it would be much needed by then (I already feel it is now!) Other possible happenings in the pipeline, but for now, I hope you’re enjoying the autumn, or another season, depending on where you are in the world!

I’ll leave you with this stunning poem from a wonderful young poet, Warda Yassin, who I’ve been working with for 5 years now. Finally, her confidence has broken through to the other side, and her work is now being recognised (She won a Poetry Business New Poet’s Award 2018) Enjoy! (Click image).
