I was born in Zambia in 1987 and came to the UK in 1993. I studied English Literature at The University of Sheffield where I completed an undergraduate dissertation on the work of Saul Williams and co-founded a poetry and music event series called Word Life. My poems have appeared in a range of magazines and anthologies including Wasafiri, Tate Etc, Poetry International Web, City Lighthouse (Tall-Lighthouse, 2009), The Shuffle Anthology (Shuffle Press, 2009), Verbalized (British Council, 2010), Paradise By Night (Booth-Clibborn Editions 2010), Clinic II (Egg Box Publishing, 2011), The Best British Poetry 2011 (Salt Publishing, 2011), The Salt Book of Younger Poets (Salt Publishing, 2011), Bedford Square 5 (Ward Wood Publishing, 2011) and Out Of Bounds (Bloodaxe, 2012).
I am an emerging writer-in-residence at Kingston University and works as a freelance writer, performer and creative writing tutor. Here’s my website.
