Delighted to announce that my poetry collection, Refugee, inspired by my work with the wonderful writers of the Write to Life group at Freedom from Torture, has been relaunched in a brand new edition on Amazon Kindle. I am donating all my proceeds to Freedom from Torture. That currently means that approximately £1.71 of each book sold will go to help the work of this incredible organisation.
I never think of the Refugee poems as my poems. They tell some of the stories that I was privileged to witness during my time as a writing mentor at Write to Life. They are also my own reflections on what home means to me, and how we each strive to find our home in the world.
The poems were originally published by Salt Publishing and I’m very grateful to them for their kindness in allowing me to produce this new version independently.
I hope that you will buy the book so that Write to Life and Freedom can continue its crucial work, helping people to tell their stories and have them witnessed and heard by a wider world; and helping us all to make new meaning out of those aspects of our world that so often make no sense at all. Thank you so much for your support.
