Hi there! I'm Abby, a poet, short story writer, and student of Japanese.
I have lots of short stories that I recently published on here, so scroll down and check them out if that appeals to you ;)
My poetry collection, Clockwork Lives was shortlisted for the 2012 Attys and is now featured. I still love writing poetry. I was also commended for Foyle Young Poets 2015, and longlisted for the 2016 Tower Poetry Competition. Recently, I won first prize in the Young Poets Network challenge 'I am the universe', judged by Helen Mort.
