She has written for the Guardian, The Pool, The Debrief, Pitchfork and others. She writes about pop culture, race, and feminism – and the intersections between them.

She is part of the creative team behind Brainchild Festival and works with the charity My Body Back, a project to empower women who have experienced sexual violence. She also a poet and runs poetry workshops – mostly for young people – around the UK. Her poetry book called Titanic came out last year.

She has worked with the National Theatre and the Royal Opera House, and read her poems at places including the Roundhouse, Latitude Festival, the Bristol Old Vic and the Southbank Centre. She was chosen as one of The Hospital Club’s Emerging Creatives in 2015.

We talk about pitching ourselves, using Twitter to further your career, changing your mind and the importance of forgiving yourself.

The title of this episode “How Much Would It Cost To Delete Your Twitter Account?” is inspired by a tweet from @NotAgainBen.
