Hi, My names is Sarah and I am a poet based in Lincolnshire, UK. I love to write. I spend half my life thinking about what I’m going to write and half my life writing it. I also love to write and perform poetry for spoken word and perform regularly at open mic nights, in Hull and in my hometown. See the ‘Speak Out Scunny’ page for more details.
I have bipolar disorder and I’m pretty sure this fires a lot of my creativity and drive. Especially in the manic phases! I’ve written a book about my experiences with mental illness called the Same Game, Link is in the menu. I spent years in psychiatric hospitals during my late twenties and early thirties. The last seven years have been a lot more settled although I do suffer from anxiety and panic attacks.
I have two other books which are devoted to poetry. One is called Is Anybody Normal and is about the gritty realities of life and of being a woman. The other is called Smile and is a collection of bipolar poetry.
