I have a new poem up at Subbed In’s Ibis House! It’s about um … being trans and sexting/sexing other trans people. *blushes*
If you like the piece you can also tip me some money, which would be really lovely.
Have a read of my new poem about a cursed suburban rental in the latest Vulture Bones, a speculative fiction magazine for trans and enby voices.
The wonderful Cordite Publishing Inc. commissioned Keira Edwards-Huolohan and I for an art-poetry-essay project! The process of working on this commission was collaborative, cathartic and invigorating.
‘Do more, do better’ is a poem in four parts that explores transgender discrimination through a hypothetical augmented reality (AR) mobile app. There are accompanying inked and embroidered art pieces, which reiterate key themes within the poem, and a critical statement, which analyses the poem and artwork while asking ‘the reader as well as the wider community if they are doing enough for trans people and others in marginalised communities’.
TRIGGER WARNINGS for the pieces: transphobia, including mentions of misgendering, slurs, violence, death, self-harm.
A big thank you to Kent MacCarter and Rosalind McFarlane at Cordite for their encouragement and commission of this project. It was an absolute joy to work with you both!

If you’ve ever wanted to read #EnbyLife zine, it’s now free on Gumroad! Please share 💖
I’m sick of the postal survey & the hate being directed at trans & gender diverse people. I hope making this zine free helps & educates, even in the smallest way. 🌈
Cassandra and the Boy Doll at Anywhere Festival is a new work by Magnetic North Theatre Company and trans activist/writer Miranda Sparks. It’s a story about being trans and what happens in the ‘womanly ever after’.
After the show on Thursday 19th of May there will be a Q&A panel chaired by me! And the panel will also feature special guest Sophie Labelle of Assigned Male Comics!
