Hey! I'm Abbie.
Hey! I'm Abbie. I studied English Lit & Creative Writing at the University of Warwick and Acting at Monash in Australia. In 2019, I won the New Poets Prize and my book Threadbare was published in 2020. Last year, Norwich Fringe produced my play-in-progress The Father, the Son and the Owl of Death.

Writing & Performance
I read my writing at festivals and literary events, and on podcasts and radio. Places I've performed include BBC Radio Norfolk, Poetry Non-Stop, Saboteur Awards, Leeds Lit Festival, Young Norfolk Arts Festival, Sheaf Poetry Fest, Shoot From the Lip and Toast Poetry.
While living in the Netherlands, I won the International Prize in the 2019 York Mix Poetry Competition for my poem Can you draw him for us. Other poems have been published in: The North, Crannóg, Bath Magg, Re-side, Strix Magazine, Whirlagust, and Abridged.
I mainly work with acrylic on cartridge paper, but recently I've loved wooden boards and oil on canvas too! Please get in touch if you're interested in commissioning some artwork.
