Colours.

Light dapples through the stained glass of the window in my grandmother’s attic. I often get transfixed by the colours- an orderly block of precise green cubes, pure and bright, filtering summer sunlight and catching the dust particles that drift lazily by. The pattern is only interrupted by two gashes of rush brown where the…

Black: a simile creative writing prompt.

As black as the splurges on an anarchistic autumn leaf. Black like blank paper waiting for it’s colours to arrive. Black like the blossoming of ideas on a page, ink spiralling, conceiving universes. As black as clarity, like a still freshwater pond. Black like the old dried blood of a Lovecraftian nightmare. If white is…

Sweet Charity, episode one: pregnancy scandal

Hi everyone! I’ve recently started volunteering at a small charity shop alongside my studies. I’m really enjoying it so far, as the small tasks I’m required to do are a welcome distraction from the pressures of uni, and unlike sitting on facebook for five hours, I actually feel like I’m doing something significant. I’m giving back…

Lent, of sorts.

Today is St Davids Day, the patron saint of my beloved country, my homeland, my hills, and my vales. Today is the day when, back home, we’d be wearing red to school, singing sosban fach reluctantly, and eating as many Welsh cakes as physically possible. But I’m not home.

Ballerina

Overcast, the raindrops pattered on the casket like the discordant notes of an untuned piano. What now? The only thing she knew: dance. She would move for hours, alone, in a darkened studio, forming poetry with elongated limbs and careful gestures, the only sound in the room the tap of ballet shoes on wood-panelled floor….

Life Updates to Follow

AUTISM PSA

PSA!!!I am doing a little zine (imagine a mini magazine made of collage) about autism! I’m an ally so I don’t want it to be all my spiel, I want to hear from you guys. How would you (briefly) describe being autistic? What’s something you want NT’s to know? What stereotypes really hack you off?…

RAW Emerging Arts Platform- Review

Hi everyone! My life has been crazy busy recently, full of incredible and positive experiences (a bit of light relief after the stressful year I’ve had!) so I haven’t had much time for blogging. I have got into the University of Exeter! I will probably make a whole different blog post about my experience of…
