Details

A podcast where I chat to women from all walks of life about their own unique, creative journey. How they got here, how their story has shaped their creative work, what they’ve learned, what has helped them and where they plan to go from here. It’s an irregular journey for so many of us and I am delighted to offer a platform to share these fascinating stories and wells of wisdom.

Conversation with Fionna Inward Allen - Poet, Writer, Performer and Educator

In this episode I chat to Poet, Writer, Performer and Educator Fionna Inward Allen.

I first met Fee around six years ago at a mutual friend’s picnic. As soon as she flashed her stellar smile, I knew I wanted to talk to her. And talk we did, all afternoon. We have since kept in touch via social media and on the 10th of September we finally met again when Fee performed a few of her beautiful poems at the podcast live event. Her words moved the audience between both tears and laughter.

In our chat for the podcast we covered Fee’s life growing up feeling torn between writing and performing, her vast inner world as a child, creativity as a means of escape, especially when you are bound to one physical place, her time working at the BBC and her self imposed fifteen year writing apprenticeship in the caravan she bought for this sole purpose, rebuilding herself after having her son and then subsequently becoming a single parent.

And of course, so much more.

Welcome to my chat with the delightfully gorgeous Fionna Inward Allen.

Warning, this episode contains swearing and mentions of eating disorders and child abuse.

Conversation with Jo Cauldrick - Writer, Artist, Creator of The Moon Journal

In this episode I chat to writer, artist and creator of the Moon Journal, Jo Cauldrick.

With her Moon Journal website, instagram, book and patreon, Jo has created a space full of resources and wisdom about working with the moon cycles and how these can help us find balance, rhythm and focus. Beautifully illustrated and full of inspiring writing, they are not only informative but also a delight to behold.

Jo and I chat about her years of travelling around, searching for their dream home and how this led them to moving in 2020 to live off grid in Portugal, on a piece of land they hadn’t even visited before.

We talked about the time she was living in a caravan with her young family and how her decision to learn to crochet and sell fruit hats on etsy grew her confidence and blossomed into Jo pursuing the creative path she is on now. 

And of course we talk about the moon and the transformative effect it has had on both of our lives. 

Welcome to my conversation with the beautifully warm and inspiring Jo Cauldrick, I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did talking to her.

You can find Jo online at themoonjournal.com, on instagram @themoon_journal and on patreon. Jo’s book ‘Muse with the Moon’ is available on Amazon.
