Flying South: First Fortnight, Jan 2018

 Thank you Flying South for hosting such a wonderful event in conjunction with First Fortnight 

Flying South is a free, monthly, mental health themed arts and open mic night hosted on the last Friday of every month.

First Fortnight is a charity that challenges mental health prejudice through arts and cultural action. 
Festival Programme: http://www.firstfortnight.ie/…/uploa…/2017/12/FF18-FINAL.pdf

In keeping with the theme of mental health awareness, I read my poem
D-E-R-M-A-T-I-L-L-O-M-A-N-I-A
which investigates the intricacies of coping mechanisms, whilst acknowledging that healing is a journey.

*Through taking steps to be more mindful, I find sitting cross legged on the floor when poem-ing greatly reduces my anxiety
