Interviews and Autobiographies: An Education

If you want to be an actor, actress, dancer, writer, poet, filmmaker, whatever it may be, then understand that some of your best forms of talent development and education will come as interviews and biographies. Where better to hear the best tips, than from the horses mouth itself?

A Whisper In | Shoreditch

London’s essence, it’s chaotic streets and it’s size had terrified and intimidated me for many years. As a child born in the mid-90s, growing up during a time in England where anger, riots, gangs and even terror was increasing and the news seemed to be constantly of new horrific incidents, my sensitive mind latched onto…

Head Stuck In A Book; A Timeline, A Lifeline.

Perhaps is a defining word, it is an all-encompassing, sinful, innocent word. Perhaps is, for me, at the heart of every good book, and at the heart of why my head has been, in one way or another, buried inside the pages of a book for the last 22 years or so. “Perhaps, when I grow older,…

Learning How to Get Up After The Fall Again

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that dark nights and tiredness, demotivation and loneliness are not infinite. We have been told it a thousand times, we read it in magazines, in inspirational quotes, and it sinks in for a brief moment before we forget it all over again.

Turning Vegetarian … 5 Months On

Almost 5 months ago now I decided to turn vegetarian. I didn’t really know how long it would last, and I hadn’t really made a plan for how I’d go about it, but morally and nutritionally I wanted to go through with it. I said then, in a post about weight loss (which you can…

‘At These Heights’ | A Spoken Word Poem

The top, I stand, Breath heavy, Legs weakened, Hands chaffed, But I do not wait, For the sores to pass,   This peak has me numb, As I witness the way The clouds meet The sun meet The horizon. The way in which one breath, From my cracked lips soars across, Inspecting the land, Leaving…
