'I think of my poetry as primarily a live experience, that's where it's best.'
She’s known as a poet who makes poetry-haters love poetry. Jemima is a performance poet who blends snippets of her favourite vocalists and original songs with semi-confessional words about sex, concrete, politics and hedonism.
Her set will take you on a giddy tour of brutalism, internet dating, drugs, low wages, snow and sunshine, and a million things in between.
She is a tiny Yorkshire lady with a singing voice that will knock you for six. Her poems are both wildly optimistic and fist-bitingly bleak.
Jemima was short listed for the 2015 Arts Foundation Spoken Word Fellowship and has performed at Latitude, the Southbank Centre and RichMix, amongst many.
Jemima is also the assistant producer for People At Play for Change:HOW 2015.
