Want me to bring some poetry or stories to your virtual or in-person event?

Looking for a creative writing workshop facilitator, event chair or a panellist?

Any other questions or queries…?

Submit the contact form below or email jeda @ 

Generally, I’ll respond within 5 – 7 days.

I am disabled. Please:

  1. Ask me for my access requirements or Access Doc (learn how to make your events and activities more accessible).
  2. Tell me how you are making your event, project or activity more inclusive, for example:
    • Captions, audio description, sign language interpreting
    • Hybrid, wheelchair accessible venue, masks encouraged, quiet space
    • Representation of people from Global Majority/BPOC, Deaf, disabled, blind, chronically ill, neurodivergent, socioeconomically disadvantaged, and/or LGBTQIA+ communities
    • Friendly to underrepresented and marginalised communities
    • Free and sliding scale tickets, bursaries

I may not work with an organisation or collaborate on a project that is upholding multiple barriers.

I expect everyone involved to be paid fairly. I don’t usually work for free – fair rates of pay (opens in new tab).

I’m not usually available for last-minute work (less than three weeks’ notice). From time to time, my disability and current commitments may impact my capacity to respond. If you haven’t had a response within 7 days, you’re welcome to follow up.

If your request is urgent, please add ‘Urgent’ to the subject field.
