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.

The Doors, Blonde Redhead, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, La Femme, Kate Tempest, Bjork, Lana Del Rey, Lizst, SoKo, Velvet Underground, Death Grips, Jefferson Airplane, Cherry Glazerr, The Cure, Warpaint, Rachmaninoff, Swans, Nico, Midori Takada, Deafheaven, Mars Red Sky, Michelle Gurevich, and so on
