I’m happy to announce that I will be featured in the upcoming anthology from 3 of Cups Press, called On Bodies.

Featuring essays, poetry and prose, the anthology focuses on the relationships people have with their bodies. My essay focuses on the feeling of disconnection and desexualisation, and its connection with race.

On Bodies is currently crowdfunding to ensure they can put out this issue. If you have anything money to spare or want to pre-order the paperback or e-book version donate to the Kickstarter campaign.
