Colour photograph of Ju performing her poetryThese poems have been written since the late 1990s, most recently with the Together! Pop-Up Poetry Club whose poets continue to energise me. I have largely earned my living as a writer and artist since I was 21, but I also believe in data freedom and art for all. As with my other work, I therefore share the online editions freely here, and welcome and thank you for your interest and time.

* indicates that a captioned film-poem or live performance video is included.

You can also watch YouTube films of two longer outspoken-word pieces relating to disability, What's Normal Anyway? and Wheels on Fire.
