About

Hello!

I’m Shannon, a writer/poet originally from Accrington and now living in Manchester. My blog is a lil corner of the internet where I’ll be talking about a mix of things including my poetry/writing updates, mental health and other scattered thoughts on life, the places I love and the books I’m reading.

Where you can find my work:

I am currently Artist in Residence at The Horsfall Gallery. You can see some of the work I’m producing at @wordstogrowresidency on Instagram.

‘The Trapped Mermaid‘, which you can buy from Amazon, is a poetry collection exploring mental health, class, relationships and the moments that recovery is made up of.

Between‘ is a poetry zine published by The Horsfall Gallery & 42nd St Manchester, with money raised from sales going directly to 42nd St itself – copies are available at The Horsfall Gallery in Ancoats or you can message me directly for one! It explores the time in your twenties when you feel between selves, people, cities and lives…

My writing has been included in exhibitions/zines/publications/events including Through The Mill Festival, The Horsfall’s Alone Together Exhibition, Patchwork Magazine, The Insecure Girls Club and Open Mind Manchester’s Mind Full of Art.
