What I do ...
"Her voice is soft but her words are strong, Sophie's work advocates social change and equality, putting a personal perspective on political issues." Geraldine Atger, Creative Prodcuer
I write and perform poetry in theaters, festivals, smoky bars and the odd park or back alley ... in the UK and Germany. My journey in poetry began with The Roundhouse Poetry Collective, the Burn After Reading Collective and the invaluable opportunity of being long-listed to be London's young poet laureate in 2013. Since then, I've performed at lots of festivals and been published in many different magazines and anthologies. Most recently, I won the Live Canon Poetry Prize (2017). Writing helps me make sense of myself and the world in which I'm living. The more I write the happier I become.
I believe in empowering young people through creativity and lead workshops for children and teenagers.
