I’m a poet and creative educator. I believe in the power of words and in sharing that power with others.
I have a background in teaching and have taught in a wide spectrum of settings, from hidden gem community centres to bursting-at-the-seams secondary schools.
My interest in language and culture led me to study literature, linguistics and sociology at undergraduate level, as well as creative writing, and I’m currently completing my Masters in Writing Poetry at The Poetry School, London/Newcastle University.
I am a Mslexia Poetry 2017 finalist and have been published in a range of literary & indie poetry magazines (see reviews & publication).
“Elaine is a wonderful poet with hawk eye precision and feline play with words.”
