Maresa MacKeith: I’m a Writer
Here Maresa talks about what she does now
TranscriptOh wow, that is a big question. I see myself as a writer. I have written a book called Taking the Time. It has my experiences of school and life. Now I am part of a weekly poetry performance collective in Nottingham, called The Mouthy Poets. I have performed on stage and it was terrifying but amazing. I got to use my board when performing, a huge step. So I write and deliver workshops on inclusion and writing when I can.
